The country mouse Nursery School!

Welcome to The Country Mouse Nursery!
Situated in the beautiful town of Midhurst, West Sussex.

Within the heart of the glorious South Downs National Park, Country Mouse is a dynamic and caring nursery that offers childcare places for children from the age of 2 months to 5 years. Many of our children live in or around Midhurst itself, but we are just 10 minutes from Petworth and 20 minutes from Chichester, and only 18 minutes from Haslemere with its commuter train to London!


At Country Mouse, we are very much a community – we play together, eat together, respect one other – but we also treat our children as individuals who learn to make positive choices for themselves. We always recognise each child’s unique interests and learning styles, tailor-making their activities accordingly. Our curriculum is inspiring and creative, our staff highly qualified and experienced and we firmly see parents as part of our team.


Our bright, modern, newly refurbished nursery is a home-from-home cosy space, free-flowing between rooms to encourage exploration. Secure in their supportive environment, Country Mouse children feel safe, relaxed and valued – a secure state of mind that is perfect for learning. The calm atmosphere and our caring ethos ensure they are happy and confident and are therefore more receptive to being challenged and acquiring skills. Outside, our garden is as big as it is imaginative – a giant space where children can become independent and they can expand their sense of self-worth.


Please come and see us! We recognise that choosing a nursery for your child is not a decision made lightly and that’s where a team with years of experience can help. We believe we understand what’s important for both parent and child: we realise how busy and complicated life can be, and that’s why we offer flexible sessions to suit every family’s needs.
