Sunbeams Pre-School - Places available

After an Ofsted inspection carried out on 2nd March, 2011, the overall quality of the provision provided by  Sunbeams St. Nicholas was deemed to be OUTSTANDING!

Sunbeams Pre-School welcomes children daily from the age of two to five. The leaders provide stimulating, fun experiences on a large variety of fixed and mobile play equipment, both indoors and out in our fabulous, fenced, all-weather garden. The truly committed staff members are well trained and qualified in early years presentation and work hard to encourage children to learn through play. Sunbeams Pre-School has an excellent reputation and the key workers take time to build strong relationships with families to ensure children settle and excel in their development.
Fees are £4.25 an hour.  Our morning session runs from 9.00am to 12.00pm (3 hours). 

2 year old funding can be applied for if your child is entitled to free school meals.  All 3 year olds are entitled to attend for up to 15 hours each week, free of charge.

"My daughter enjoyed going so much she practically became full time. She enjoyed messy play, digging for worms – loved the sandpit! I think it’s a lovely place for children to experience play, ‘doing all the things we parents don’t like doing at home."

Mr. Friar

"My Grandson has attended Sunbeams since he was two and loves every day. The staff have taken really good care of him and he is always happy when I collect him at the end of the day. The garden at Sunbeams St Nicholas is their biggest asset, the children can play out all year round and bring their wellies to play out doors if its wet"
