Parsonage Farm Day Nursery

Providing day care for children aged 3 months to reception age in Ticehurst and surrounding areas in East Sussex

How we take care of your little-ones.

Our team has been carefully chosen to create a supportive balance, provided by a team of qualified staff, who are energetic capable and highly experienced. Together they allow us to offer the very best care for children from 3-months up to reception age.

The Parsonage Farm Day Nursery environment has been purpose-built to do exactly the same. Tucked away in a tranquil rural setting, our pretty, period dairy building has been converted into modern nursery accommodation equipped and designed with young children in mind from the outset.

From our cosy library, indoor activity areas, and safely enclosed outdoor play spaces, to junior toilets, secluded sleep room and a kitchen that allows supervised children to help prepare their own healthy drinks and snacks. Our setting caters for all our children’s requirements, while supporting every child individually within an inclusive family atmosphere, watched over by capable childcare experts.

From the day we opened, Parsonage Farm Day Nursery’s goals have always been about more than the simple provision of day care.  Instead, our aim is to assist our parents, to the best of our abilities, by helping their children develop into inquisitive, enthusiastic individuals with the social skills and independence to take their next steps into a wider world.

The trick is to make it look like child’s play.


Parsonage Farm Day Nursery is open five days a week throughout the year, excluding Bank Holidays and the week between Christmas and the New Year.

We’re open between: 8am - 6pm from Monday to Thursday, 8am - 5pm on Friday

Places are also available during term-times only, and we offer an ‘Early Bird’ start for parents who need their children to be with us before 8am as well as a variety of sessional options, ensuring our nursery care is tailored to suit your needs.


To effectively take care of our little-ones we group them according to age, with each group having their own appropriately equipped rooms and facilities. These groups are as follows:

Ducklings – 3 months to 2 years

Cow Shed – 2 to 3 years

Pig Pen – 3 years+

Our staff are qualified to care for the needs of each specific age group, working in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the statutory framework laid out to ensure healthy development, care and learning.

On reaching Pig Pen we begin preparing our little-ones for their next big step to primary school, ensuring they leave us with the skills and knowledge to continue their learning journey in confidence. We also liaise with many of the local schools our children may be attending, to help make transitions as easy as possible. We also enjoy special visits from the Fire Service, Police, Dentist etc.

During term time Pig Pen children participate in activities from outside providers such as Sports, French and Dance

Activities for children in all our groups are planned within the EYFS guidelines for meeting each child’s developmental needs and interests. As each child learns and grows in their own unique way, we observe and monitor their progress, to give you a learning journal of their time spent here at Parsonage Farm Day Nursery.
