If you wish to enrol your child please telephone the Nursery first to discuss your childcare requirements and we can then make arrangements for you and your child to come in and visit us. We will show you around our facilities and can get to know each other better. If you decide to join our ‘Sunshine Family’ an enrolment form will be given to you for you to complete. There is a registration fee of £50.00 which is non-refundable and covers the cost of administration and pre-admission visits.


The Nursery employs twenty two members of staff, many of whom have worked at the nursery for at least fifteen years; which we trust reflects a dedicated and strong team who work collaboratively together and ensure the smooth running of the Nursery & Pre-School. All members of staff are DBS checked and are fully qualified Nursery Practitioners. All staff participate in regular training to keep up to date with new developments within the Early Years and staff are fully trained in First Aid and Safeguarding issues. All Practitioners work together with parents and other agencies to support children with additional needs. Should you have a concern regarding your child before they commence at the Nursery please do not hesitate to contact us.
