Sunflowers Day Nursery in Pateley Bridge is a nursery where your child can learn and play in a warm, safe and caring environment. We offer a child centered personalized approach to the childcare we provide, and work hard to build special relationships with parents and families to meet the needs of each child.
I strongly believe that once this relationship is built, we can begin to offer a realistic care plan for your child, which grows and develops as both your child’s and your family’s individual needs change. We are able to offer a varied curriculum, which includes external activities such as swimming, and nursery activities which foster your child’s social & emotional, creative, physical, and intellectual development. The emphasis is on play, and working with your child’s natural cycle of development, with opportunities to build on curiosity, which in turn will bring about the desire to explore and become a natural learner in their school years ahead.
Sunflowers has an extensive outdoor learning and exploration area. We believe in learning through play and investigation and readily accept and promote ‘Outdoor Learning’ as the norm. A big part of our nursery life is celebrating MUD! – we have mud kitchens, digging areas, growing and planting – everything we need to thoroughly have fun! Being outside and experiencing the great outdoors is very much part of our Ethos and is central to each day at nursery.
Our nursery is open Monday – Friday from 7.30am – 6.00pm. We are open 51 weeks a year – closing only for the week between Christmas and New Year. – upon request we can offer an early birds session from 7.00am.
Please phone the nursery on 01423 712555 and arrange a visit where one of our team can show you round our wonderful purpose built nursery and you can meet our dedicated staff and happy children. We look forward to meeting you.
Poppins After School Club!
We offer After School care and a pick up service from some local schools. We are able to offer school holiday care too. It is so lovely to have a special time of the day dedicated to bigger children – with age appropriate resources and the opportunity to relax at the end of a busy school day our after school service Poppins is always very popular. We advise that any bookings are made early to avoid disappointment.
