A leading day school in Midhurst for 2~13 year olds


Pupils often begin their journey in Little Conifers Pre-School, from 2 years old.

Conifers School is a leading nursery and pre-school in Midhurst, West Sussex. Pupils often begin their journey in our Pre-School, before Reception.

Welcome to Little Conifers Pre School – a place where young minds grow and develop through a range of exciting and stimulating experiences. At Little Conifers Pre School, we understand the importance of early education and the benefits of nurturing a child’s curiosity, thirst for knowledge and to develop a love of learning. Our experienced teachers provide a welcoming and supportive environment that encourages children to learn through play, exploration, and discovery whilst also bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to these classes, making learning fun and engaging for every child. 

Our excellent Early Years team work alongside specialist teaching staff in the main school to offer a comprehensive range of specialist classes, including Spanish, Music, PE, and Ballet. Whether it’s singing songs in Spanish, learning ballet moves, or playing games that promote physical development, our specialist classes are designed to inspire and motivate your child.

In addition to our specialist classes, we also offer Forest School and outdoor learning opportunities, which allow children to explore and connect with nature. Our Forest School programme teaches children valuable life skills, such as problem-solving, teamwork, and resilience, while also promoting a love and appreciation for the natural world.

At Little Conifers Pre School, we understand that transitioning to Reception class can be a big step for children and parents alike. That’s why we provide a supportive and caring environment that prepares children for the next stage of their education. Our carefully crafted curriculum is designed to meet the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and will provide your child with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.

Our Little Conifers Pre-School hours are 8:30am – 3:30pm, but with full wraparound care, including morning and after school clubs, children are cared for from 8am to 6pm if required.
