Sunrise Day Nursery is a privately owned Nursery, established in 1998
The Nursery has been nurtured since its inception and has, over the years, expanded and grown whilst consistently striving to achieve the highest quality standards in childcare.
The Nursery is registered to care for from birth to 5 years alongside holiday care for children aged up to 8 years.
The Nursery is open each weekday from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. for 51 weeks of the year. The Nursery closes for bank holidays and for 1 week over the Christmas and New Year period.
We provide a happy, safe and secure Nursery setting in which each child's individuality is recognised and encouraged.
We ensure that our staff team create a loving, caring and nurturing learning environment with a focus on early year’s stimulation and development. Children are supported in developing confidence, autonomy, self-respect, kindness and independence.
We combine elements of the Montessori teachings with Forest School principles and link them closely and cohesively with the EYFS (early years foundation stage).
The EYFS (early years foundation stage) is a Government framework that all early years providers in England follow. We add to the EYFS with Montessori teachings and Forest School principles to further enrich your child’s learning experience.
The EYFS has 7 early learning goals:
The Montessori approach is holistic and aims to develop the whole child. Fundamental to the approach is the belief that a child's early years from birth to six are the period when they have the greatest capacity to learn.
The Forest School principles – of which there are 6 – benefits children by:
The original concept of Forest School began in Sweden in the 1950’s and developed throughout other Scandinavian and European countries.
The modern concept of Forest School was established in Denmark for pre-school aged children in the 1980’s. During the mid 1990’s these Early Years settings were visited by professionals in the UK and ideas were brought back into early years settings. A long study in Sweden discovered that children attending Forest School sessions had:
Labelled With Your Child’s Name
"Being outdoors has a positive impact on children’s sense of well-being and helps all aspects of children’s development"
"Being outdoors offers opportunities for doing things in different ways and on different scales that when indoors"
"Outdoor environments offer children freedom to explore, use their senses and be physically active and exuberant"
"When children are actively involved in learning they gain a sense of satisfaction from their explorations and investigations"
The fees at Sunrise Day Nursery are reviewed annually.
Our rates are 0-2 years and 2-5 years. The sessions are 8.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. (morning); 1.00 p.m. – 6.00 p.m. (afternoon) or 8.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. (full day). We also offer additional sessions and additional hours.
Fees are due on the 1st of each month. Early Education Funding is deducted at source from your monthly invoice and stretched over the 12 month period (NEG is only funded by the Local Authority for 38 weeks of the year).
You can pay for your child’s nursery fees via childcare vouchers from your pre-tax salary. We would ask that if you are paying by vouchers you speak to the Nursery Manager in the first instance as each Voucher Company has its own unique reference number for the Nursery which enables the payment to come directly into our bank account.
Early Education Funding for 3 and 4 year olds – 15 funded hours
Children aged 3 and 4 years old may attend Nursery, subject to conditions and availability, for up to 15 hours per week of NEG Funded hours for 38 weeks per year.
However, please discuss how this works with the Manager as our attendance and invoicing is based on the full year so the NEG hours are “stretched” over the year not term time only.
These hours are free of charge and are shown as such on the monthly invoice. These hours can be taken 5 hours per day x 3 days subject to availability.
