Barnkids is a farm based nursery in the Surrey Hills, with on-site Forest School. We are located on a magical site, in converted barn buildings, surrounded by open countryside, where children’s imaginations are free to run wild. We care for children aged 6 months to 11 years, following the core Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in the nursery and pre-school and exploration and fun in the after school and holiday club.

Forest School

Our forest camp is a short walk from the nursery across picturesque, grassy farmland. Forest School allows children the freedom to immerse themselves in the natural world; engaging and inspiring them to use their imagination to create play where almost anything can be possible.
