  • Who we are

    A home from home environment located in the heart of the community

    Occupying a converted manor house, Sunhill Hemel Hempstead is one of the oldest nurseries in the country.

    Our home from home nursery was refurbished in 2020 providing a new, modern feel inside our setting.

    The homely setting has access to extensive grounds offering all age groups a vast area for physical activities. The garden, which was redesigned and refurbished in 2017, includes a mini woodland nature walk and growing area in order to give children the opportunity to further explore and extend their play. We place strong importance on Forest School and the children engage in regular sessions in order to explore and discover the outside world.

    We are central to local schools and over the past 50 years have built strong links so that the children’s transition from nursery to school is as easy and smooth as possible – for both the children and parents!

    AVAILABLE FUNDING

    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.
