    "My daughter runs to get into the nursery"

    "All staff are pleasant and approachable, and the manager is also really nice and helpful. The thing I like most is my daughter runs to get into the nursery, and I've never had her unhappy to go or picked her up unhappy; she loves it that much, and as a parent, that makes it all the more better!"

    "Friendly, helpful and supportive of development"

    "Friendly, helpful and supportive of development. Always gives thorough information on my child’s activities. Supportive of a vegan diet. My 17-month-old looks forward to going and can be left without crying (eventually!) very big deal for me as she’s a koala baby!"

    "My son has come on leaps and bounds"

    "All the staff at the nursery are always so friendly and helpful. My son has come on leaps and bounds and is learning so much from all the activities they do and the support they give him. I would recommend Sunhill Day Nursery to any parents with young children who want peace of mind that their child is well cared for."

    Simple and straight-forward

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself.

    Because of this, we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit to the nursery you’re interested in.

    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many familiesoff choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.
