A warm, relaxed, and homely environment for your children
These placements are fixed and involve you choosing specific sessions and having those sessions each week. Once they are agreed, they are secured. However, should you need to alter a session then provided we have a minimum of one weeks’ notice and availability, you are welcome to change. We always endeavour to try to accommodate parents at short notice.
These placements are designed primarily for parents who work shifts and rarely have two weeks the same. They are limited and work on a first come, first served basis. These sessions are only secured once booked and hence advance booking is essential to ensure reliability.
At Sunnybank we are committed to promoting British Values. We value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all our children and families and celebrate a variety of events and occasions. We promote values in many ways; by teaching children right from wrong at an early age, by teaching and encouraging decision making and democracy, by teaching respect for each others views and values, talking about our feelings and learning about sharing and taking turns during play.
The Nursery is focused on our Mission Statement and feel this reflects British Values.
"To all the Wonderful Staff at Sunnybank Nursery,

You welcomed me with a friendly smile when I was only '1'
You took my hand and cuddled me until I got used to everyone
Your reassured, encouraged me, watched that I didn't fall
You saw me grow in confidence and joined in with my play
You talked to me about the world and heard what I had to say
You helped me build first friendships to take turns and learn to share
You showed me the importance of trying to be fair
You laughed with me and shared my joy and joined me in a smile
You comforted me and listened if I was sad for a while
You taught me many of life's lessons amongst the paint and dough
You have been the best Nursery teachers and I do thank you so!
Thanking you all for looking after me and helping me grow - I will miss you all!

"Thank you so much for taking such fantastic care of Izzy! She has absolutely loved every day at Sunnybank and all the staff and children.
We have no doubt in our minds that you have all played a massive part in her growing up into the kind and caring girl that she is today.
She will miss you all terribly but at least she will be able to pop in when we pick up Will!
Thank you! xxx
Terry, Ben, Will and Isabelle!

"To Sunnybank Nursery,
Thank you for looking after me since I was a tiny little baby!
I liked painting, playing with cars, playing boats and trying to draw, playing in the mud kitchen!
My Mummy says I love coming into Nursery, I have made so many friends and I am always telling her about the fun things I have done in the day! You have been like a second family!
We will miss you lots and lots

"To everone at Sunnybank,
I can't believe its time for big school!
It doesn't seem like 2 minutes since Alice had to peel me off Mummy (and I still like an Alice cuddle now!) I wouldn't be who I am today without every single one of you! Thank you for teaching me wonderful things, helping me grow and giving me so many memories I will cherish forever.
See you in the holidays!
Love Cole xxx"
"We cannot thank you enough for the support not only for Cole but for us too. Nothing was ever too much trouble and although Cole has 'flown the nest' we can't wait to start the next chapter with Hallie.
Love you all!

"We moved our daughter to Sunnybank recently after a bad experience elsewhere and we absolutely love it! The staff are all so committed and caring it astounds us. They have gone above and beyond to support our little girl and are always tailoring her learning/play to what she is interested in at the time (which changes nearly every day!) She has transformed from a shy, nervous little girl who wouldn't communicate with others to a confident and clever individual! We could not be happier with the care provided and would recommend to everyone!" E.Knight - May 2017
"I had to find a new nursery at very short notice for my son and Sunnybank have been very accommodating. Although we still have a few tears at drop off time, the staff have been very supportive, finding ways to help settle my son, and put me at ease ( a stressing mum!!) and when it's time to pick him up he's always having lots of fun!" T.Smart - June 2017
"i just want to say thank you so much for all the staff team do...not least when we had forgotten ** bag of spare pants this week and Amber had to put him in girls' pants..when ** undressed him that night, he danced around singing 'ooh la la' and they fell about giggling..a happy moment! " R.Rice - Jan 2018

"Thanks for everything today. It was much appreciated. I don't know what I'd have done without the help. It was horrid and you all have to be commended for staying out in the cold to help. Well done!" L.Hawkins
"Well done everyone you’ve all done amazing! Thank you so much for staying open when you could and keeping everyone safe!" S.Watkinson
""Please can I thank the staff for last week when it was snowing. It was really helpful of you to bring the children out to us and Gemma in particular was doing a sterling job of shovelling the snow in the bitter cold! She just mucks right in! She even stopped the traffic for me bless her. I hope you all managed to get home ok that day!" L.Hopcroft
"Thank you so much to all the amazing staff. You have all been fantastic and we are lucky as parents to be able to send our children to such a lovely nursery with such committed and lovely staff. I know Toby loves you all. Hopefully he will be back in next week. Thank you x" H.Alcock
"Definitely agree with the stars of the week! I’m sure I speak for all the parents/carers and children when I say, your super efforts are very much appreciated :)" T.Smart
We are so grateful for the families we meet through our setting, many of whom become lifelong friends!
