Kiddie Capers Merlin House

Kiddie Capers, Merlin House Nursery provides stimulating and enabling environments for children aged 0-5 years old. Conveniently located near Haywards Heath train station, Kiddie Capers offers ease of access for commuting parents. With opening hours from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm, we provide flexibility to accommodate the needs of busy families.

 At Kiddie Capers, we pride ourselves on our engaging and educational outings. We believe that hands-on experiences outside the nursery walls enhance children’s learning and development. Through regular outings to local parks, libraries, and other educational venues, we expose children to new environments, fostering their curiosity and broadening their knowledge.

 At Kiddie Capers, we understand the importance of active play, which is why we have a dedicated soft play room. This space offers a safe and fun environment for children to engage in physical activity, fostering their motor skills, coordination, and imagination.  Our nursery boasts a large garden where children can explore, discover nature, and enjoy outdoor play. The expansive outdoor space provides ample room for physical activities, gardening projects, and nature-based learning experiences.

 Aligned with our dedication to quality education, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. Our experienced staff members create stimulating activities that cater to each child’s unique needs, promoting their holistic growth across various areas of development. By incorporating play-based learning, social interaction, and structured routines, we ensure that children receive a well-rounded educational experience.

What our children like about nursery

I love it when I dress up as Elsa and playing in the soft play. I like angry red from monster phonics because he’s red

I like the dressing up box and I know how to write my name now. I like playing musical statues to let it go with my friends
 I like the baby box and dress up box too. I like playing on the slide and balancing on the tyres
