*provide high quality education and childcare where our children can play, investigate and explore a well planned imaginative and stimulating environment.

*develop relationships where adults and children accept, value and respect one another.

*promote children’s interests and value each child as a unique individual with special skills and abilities.

*work in partnership with parents so that parents feel fully involved in their child’s learning and development.

New Starters

Our new starters - whatever their age- are supported to make the transition between home and Browns Lane with gentle care and we move at their speed working closely with you to make it a truly happy experience


All our children have the opportunity to play indoors or outdoors as they wish and we provide a wide range of toys and equipment that they can mostly access themselves. If a child has a specific interest we will strive to provide opportunities and resources to explore it further. 

Busy Bees

In the year leading up to their next step to school, our "Busy Bees" have their own classroom with resources and activities suitable for the next level of learning. They have short period of adult lead listening and attention activity and / or working cooperatively in a group.

Our Approach

Our children learn through their play. We make sure we are always led by what the children want to do and look for ways to develop their ideas and build on their strengths and interests

What Our Parents Think

"Both my boys have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Browns Lane. I’ve always felt confident in the care given, knowing that they’re safe, having their individual needs met, and being supported lovingly as they develop the necessary skills to help them thrive as they grow. My sons always came home with big smiles from a fun day at Browns Lane, it’s a really fun setting for a young child and I would highly recommend!"
