Thanks for visiting our website.

We aim to give children the very best start in life by tapping into their boundless enthusiasm for learning something new and making friends.

To see how our beautiful nurseries and child-centred Montessori approach can help  your child thrive in their crucial early years, please come along for a visit to Uckfield or Lewes.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

How we build on a child’s natural curiosity


To this little girl, using the blocks to create the tower is engaging and fun. To our Early Years Educators, she is learning visual discrimination and taking her first steps in early years maths.

Your child has an extraordinary capacity to learn and develop new skills. We recognise this and provide children with wonderful new educational experiences every day.

We want children to really love their time at nursery, so we go the extra yard to make sure they’re safe, happy, stimulated and surrounded by friends.

The atmosphere in our classrooms is happy and calm as children busily get on with the activities we’ve prepared for them. There’s a free-flow system so children have freedom to roam in a structured environment. Everyone goes outside to play morning and afternoon. The Mini Monties go for regular pushchair walks while older children will go to Forest School every week. The food we serve is delicious and healthy.

To see how we can help your child enjoy their time at nursery, come along for a visit. We’d be delighted to show you around.

Our family looking after yours

School House Nurseries is a family-run company.  Lindy Baldwin trained as a Montessori teacher and has been running Montessori nurseries from the age of 22. Her nursery in Lewes was established 15 years ago and over that time it has always been an Outstanding setting, winning awards for its excellence on the way.

Our youngest, Tabitha, tries to get the babies to sleep. Our three children went to our family-run nursery

This means we can promise you the professionalism and rigour of the biggest chains with the care and personal touch you’d expect from a nursery where the owners work in it every day and who live locally.

We don’t do it all on our own, of course. We have a lovely team of early years educators and teachers working at the nurseries, all of whom are passionate about children and the child-centric approach at School House Nurseries.

We believe this makes a big difference to the care and early years experiences we can offer children, and we hope you’ll see the difference  when you come for a visit.
