We believe that children learn best through hands-on play based experiences. At Sunbeams we strive to provide a broad, diverse and stimulating curriculum which centres around each individual child’s needs and interests.
Following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) we plan a variety of activities both indoors and outdoors which aim to encourage children’s independence and imagination across the 7 areas of Learning and Development.

Since our first priority is that your child is happy, we make every effort to provide the best quality of care in order to make their time here enjoyable as well as educational.

The daily running of the Nursery is led by our Manager and is overseen by the Head Teacher and School Governors. Our staff team are highly qualified and experienced practitioners who are passionate about working with children and their families.
