We are proud to be the first Early Years Setting in the country to be awarded "Recognised Provider Status" by the Forest School Association.  Read the full story here.

At St. Mary's Pre-School, Horsham we offer a fun, stimulating, safe and spacious environment for children aged from two and three months to five years old.

Children benefit from the experience and commitment of our highly-qualified staff, our excellent range of resources and, perhaps most of all, from the friendly, caring atmosphere. Open 37 weeks of the year, our opening times reflect the traditional school day.


As a fully inclusive Pre-School, we warmly welcome children from all faiths and children with additional needs.  The Pre-School was set up by St Mary's Church and together we organise many events and services for families.

What our Parents say.....

"The most loving environment with teachers who genuinely care about our children. Forest school is just magical. So many wonderful activities to enable our children to learn and develop in natural environments.  Seeing how happy L is when she comes out of pre-school with so many fun stories to tell is amazing"   See more....
