Wooden Surface

Our team

Owner Hannah is supported by a dedicated team of experienced, caring staff who are all skilled at intuitively ‘tuning in’ to each child’s needs. We maintain a high ratio of staff to children (a maximum of 3:1 for children and 1:1 for babies) so that staff can focus their full attention on the children. All staff are fully insured, DBS checked and paediatric first aid trained. 

Hannah Rosalie



I grew up in a cedar shingled bungalow, down a lane in the heart of the Sussex countryside. Summer holidays were spent playing in the woods and fields with my brother and helping out at our neighbours farm. Nature is a part of who I am, wild food, crafts and preserving are big hobbies, but most of all I love children, love teaching and am a passionate homemaker.


Further education took me to Wales, a degree in Marine Biology, a growing enthusiasm for conservation and teaching, a move to Cumbria, an advanced Forest Schools qualification and Diploma in Informal Education, and full circle back to Sussex to start a family.
