About the employer

ear and Bunny Nursery and Pre-school...

Is a family-owned nursery, located on the outskirts of the rural village of Charlwood - yet close to Horley and Gatwick. The home for our pre-school is Crangal Cottage - a gorgeous old Victorian house that has seen a few additions. Home for our babies up until the age of three is our stunning 13th Century Farmhouse. A true slice of history - and very "Alice in Wonderland" helping to add to the magic of your child's early years. At whichever age your child comes to us - it truly is a home from home nursery - beautiful enclosed large gardens and woodland surround both properties.
