Nursery

At Sunshine Day Nursery, we are dedicated to providing high quality childcare. We offer each individual child a safe, fully inclusive, secure and caring environment. We provide a wide range of stimulating and purposeful activities in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This will allow each child to pursue their own interests and goals in order to promote and enhance their development. We are committed to the principals of the inclusion of children with special needs and of equal opportunities. We ensure that all children are treated equally regardless of race, religion, colour, nationality, gender or disability. Sunshine Nursery has 3 rooms of which provide daycare for children from birth to school readiness, 48 weeks per year.

Sunshine Nursery complies with the requirements for the Early Years register set out in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is the period of education from Birth to Five. This enables children to access secure foundations for learning. Development Matters help children achieve Early Learning Goals by the end of their reception year. The goals cover seven main areas of children's development and learning. All children attending Sunshine Nursery have their own individual learning journal which identifies children's achievements.
