  • Who we are

    A truly unique, warm and homely nursery in the heart of the community

    Nestled in the small village of Fen Drayton, Sunhill Nursery offers an abundance of opportunities for children to develop into curious and confident learners.

    We are very proud to follow a blended EYFS and Montessori approach to our learning. The nursery rooms are warm and welcoming complete with carefully selected resources to enrich the children’s learning and development.

    Babies join us in the Stars Room and as they grow and develop, toddlers transition into the Sunbeams Room. These rooms have their own garden with slides, a mud kitchen, a water play area, a sand pit, a discovery area, seesaws and a rocking horse. The nursery encourages independence skills and children are able to free flow between indoor and outdoor areas throughout the day.

    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off 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 voucher.

    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.


Ensuring we tailor your child’s learning to their individual interests

"We are a lovely welcoming nursery with a homely feel set in the old school house in the quaint village of Fen Drayton. We ensure all the children receive a high quality of care and teaching, and value our partnerships with our parents."
