If you would like your school or early years setting included in the directory please send a short description (max 100 words), location, contact details etc. please include 2 photographs of your setting. Please send an email by using the email link below and provide the information about your school or setting.
Annan The Froebel School East Sussex
Annan School is an independent primary school and kindergarten for children from 2 to 11 years old. The school is set in a beautiful location between Lewes and Uckfield. At Annan we believe in educating children to believe in themselves and reach their own unique potential.
The school runs in both purpose built and converted buildings, including a large farmhouse which accommodates the kindergarten and infant classes. There is plenty of lovely wooded outdoor space, an allotment garden and orchard. The school offers a Froebelian education, placing an emphasis on creative and active learning. Children leave Annan proud of their successes and knowing that they are prepared for the next stage in their educational journey.
Children can join the school from the age two. Places are also available for children to join at Reception, and throughout the primary school, if spaces are available.

Mr Noah's Nursery School Kent
Welcome to the little family of our nursery school in Iden Green, Benenden. Kent. We were founded in 1995 and over the years we have expanded so that a dozen children occupy three very spacious rooms - young children need kindness, gentleness and space to think, learn and develop. We emphasize children's activity outside, offering a large garden on site, and woodland within walking distance. Exploration of the natural outdoor environment was something we were doing before people ever heard of 'forest school'. It is part and parcel of our ethos. We offer spaces for cildren between 2 and 5 years old.
At Mr Noah’s we provide opportunities for children’s learning through a Froebelian approach. Peter Michell leads the team. He and his wife, Marian, opened the nursery school in 1995. He is a qualified school teacher (PGCE) as well as holding the Early Years Professional Status and accredited Froebel Teacher status. He is the editor of 'Early Days', the magazine of Love Early Years (formerly Christian Initiatives in Early Education).
