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.
When children are 3 years old, they transition into our pre-school room. The children in pre-school have their own garden with 2 climbing frames, a mud kitchen, a construction area, a literacy area, a maths area, a water play area, a sand pit, and a canoe. Free flow is also encouraged between the indoor and outdoor space.

"We'd definitely recommend it to others""Our children have been going here since 2018, and both absolutely love it. The staff are great and foster a really warm, caring environment where the children seem to thrive. Activities are really varied, with lots of outdoor time and also really flexible and accommodating with helping our children have the chance to celebrate festivals like Chinese New Year. We'd definitely recommend it to others."
"The staff are absolutely amazing""Although we live 25 miles away, we chose to place our boy James here from September 2019 one full day a week as its location is just a mile away from where I worked. Even though just one month later I switched jobs, James immediately loved it here so we chose to keep sending him. It's a lovely old building with lots of character and not at all clinical like most chain nurseries. The staff are absolutely amazing; particularly Ruth, Helen, and Michelle, making sure James' development is carefully logged and shared with his local pre-school which he also attends."
"The nursery itself has a warm and homely atmosphere""The nursery itself has a warm and homely atmosphere and offers both indoor and outdoor areas for play.
The food is homemade and the menu is varied and seasonal, much better quality than other settings we have encountered. We are confident that our little girl is happy and well cared for, and that the nursery offers a safe and stimulating environment for her. We would definitely recommend Fen Drayton Montessori Nursery to other families."
"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."
