Welcome to the Old Barn Day Nursery

The Old Barn Day Nursery is a private day care Nursery located in Banstead which operates from 2 sites.  The main Nursery is situated in a beautiful listed building on Woodmansterne Lane, and the pre-prep is located on the High Street. Both Nurseries are conveniently located for access to local towns and cities via the M25 and there is easy access by train for travel into London.

Our philosophy is that every child we care for deserves a calm, caring, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn.

We adhere to our registration on the Ofsted Early Years Register. This monitors the overall quality standards of the early years provision in line with the principles and requirements of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’.

The Old Barn Day Nursery and Pre-prep are both rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted

Nursery – November 2018
Pre-prep – October 2018


Our main aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can learn through play.


Your first settling in sessions will give you and your child an opportunity to get to know your child’s key person.


Both Nurseries have large secure gardens where we are able to offer children many opportunities for outdoor learning including physical activity, gardening, sand and water play.


Our menus are designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.

Fantastic nursery, the staff are all so lovely and welcoming. My 10 month old started in February and is doing really well there. They have excellent attention to detail, including the diary which contains so much information for parents to read on how their child is doing each day, great choice of food and a real personal touch with each baby.

My daughter goes on regular outings to the local park or library and takes part in event days to support charities such as ‘Children in Need’ as well as daily activities to support her learning and development.

We would highly recommend The Old Barn to friends/family and we are very happy and believe we made the right choice.

A lovely nursery with a family feel, completely happy and confident leaving my child in their care.

My daughter loves attending this nursery. It is set up as a ‘home from home’ with friendly staff, helpful management and excellent facilities.

The Old Barn Day Nursery is a warm and caring environment for children to play and learn. The staff are caring and positive and help the children to reach their full potential. My son loves coming to nursery and often has a smile on his face when I collect him.
