The Ark Nursery

Happy, fun and friendly pre-school learning


The Ark Nursery, in the lovely village of Bolney, was founded by Jenny Payne in 1999.  

We pride ourselves on providing inclusive, individual education for children from 2 years old until they go to school.  We carefully plan for the next steps in every individual’s learning by taking account of their interests and personalities.

We are currently registered for 26 places per session.  Sessions run from 8.30 or 9am depending on your family’s requirements with the morning session ending at 12.15.  Lunch club is everyday until 1.15.  Afternoon sessions run until 3pm.

All our enthusiastic and very well qualified staff also undertake ongoing training in first aid and child protection as well as relevant EYFS training.

At The Ark all children are taught to care for and value eachother and the world around them, achievements are celebrated and clear boundaries provide a safe and secure environment in which to grow.
