Joyland Nursery

Joyland Nursery Website

I opened Joyland in 1986. As a teacher I had taught in London and Brighton for a number of years before starting my family. Having decided not to return to teaching I started a small term-time only childcare setting in dedicated rooms in my own house with my youngest son being the first child on the roll.
Located near Fiveways / Preston Park, Brighton.


Strawberry Hill Nursery , Grantham Road, Brighton.
For Children 3 months - 5 yrs old.
Strawberry Hill Nursery Website

I spent four years running Joyland, It wasn’t long before I realised that there was the need for a childcare provision for younger children open throughout the year and not just during the school terms. I established Strawberry Hill in 1990. Located near Fiveways / Preston Park, Brighton
