Welcome to Young Friends Nature Nursery. Brighton and Hove’s only true Eco-Nature Nursery. Many settings dabble in sustainability, outside play, forest school and nature – but we really do go for it.
Sustainability intertwines everything we do. We have created our own environmentally aware curriculum and the intense benefits to our children are crystal clear. Talk to any of our preschoolers about biodiversity, gardening, seasons and looking after the planet and its creatures and you’ll be amazed at their knowledge and desire to help save the earth. We are pretty sure one day they will.
Our work for the environment has been globally and locally recognised through articles, interviews and social media in local and international press. We are Nursery of The Year (Nursery World) finalists this year (2019). We are plastic free and take great care to minimize our carbon footprint and what we add to landfill. Louise, owner/manager/director of Young Friends as started an influential campaign called SNAP (Sustainable Nurseries Against Plastic) which aims to persuade other nurseries to become more sustainable plus educate their children to look after our planet. Please ask us for more information on this important subject.
Our Nature Nursery is a happy settled place full of self-assured adventurous and caring children. This, balanced with a fanatical ‘behind the scenes’ attention to infinite improvement and a considerable helping of an always smiling, brilliant and harmonious staff team, is a (n award) winning recipe.
We are a warm family run nursery. In fact we consider ourselves a family away from home and our families say the same. Interactions and communications with our children and families is warm, welcoming and intelligent. You will not find a bunch of people so dedicated to children and the planet in one place, we are sure of that. We are incredibly proud of our natural Eco-Friendly nursery. Please read our Facebook reviews and FB and Instagram posts if you need any more persuading. And of course please come and check us out.
