Norto5 Kidz

Based in Burgess HillNorto5 logo (West End Farm), Cuckfield and Lindfield in West Sussex, we pride ourselves in allowing our KIDZ to be kids and enjoy their early years with us while at the same time learning and experiencing so may things.

We take children from birth and help them grow and learn until they leave us to go to "Big School". Like all other nurseries and pre-schools we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. We have a fun and caring environment for all the kids to enjoy. In addition we offer after school care for those not yet old enough to move up to The Play Café - our out-of-school club.
