A Little About Us...

Owning our own nursery has been a dream for my sister and I for as long as we can remember and now after years of searching and an extraordinary amount of help, our dream has become a reality in the form of Charley Barleys. 


We feel we make the perfect team and plan on being extremely hands on, with Cassie having a business degree and strong administrative skills and myself benefitting from 12 years working in and managing nurseries around Brighton & Hove. Over the course of my career, I’ve had the pleasure of working within some fantastic nurseries and it’s this experience that has hopefully allowed me to combine all their best qualities into our new nursery.  


Whilst we’ll strive to become a successful business, our passion is the children and their learning and wellbeing will always be paramount to us. We strongly believe that a ‘home away from home’ environment is key, and feel children learn best in friendly and secure surroundings. To achieve this we will only be employing the highest quality of staff who will be trained constantly to maintain this.


We believe that children have a voice and learn through exploring the environment and materials around them. Charley Barleys will give the children opportunity to do so, by providing a range of activities and day to day routines. We’ve invested heavily in both our indoor and outdoor spaces and both have been designed to have a bright and airy feel, ensuring the children feel confident to explore all areas provided.


We very much hope to build a positive relationship within the community around us and will be looking to build a solid reputation for excellence, backed up by a future outstanding OFSTED rating.

We are looking forward to meeting all the children and families that are looking to join us here at Charley Barleys.
