Nursery

Our small, community setting offers everything you would expect from a first-class Nursery  – a safe, nurturing environment, a skilled and committed team of staff, ‘free’ EY funded places, and an excellent EYFS curriculum that integrates assessed learning with the individual needs of each child. Personal development is also supported through the practice of mindfulness, which is at the heart of our school.

Visit our Mindfulness in Early Years section to discover how our unique ethos offers the best possible foundation for your child’s educational and personal and development.

If you would like to experience our Nursery first-hand, please call the school office on 01273 502055 to arrange a visit.

“When my oldest child started in Sunflower he had already attended two day nurseries. In those nurseries he seemed quite withdrawn and timid, almost beginning to shutdown. It was like watching a flower unfurl when we found the Dharma Primary School; he was able to be himself again and developed hugely in the space of one year. He just loved going to school. The Nursery is a perfect environment to develop social skills; it’s small, calm, compassionate, and outdoor space and mindfulness are woven into the day.”

– Sunflower parent, 2015

“Children are given many opportunities to express themselves clearly, confidently and with enjoyment…All develop high levels of emotional literacy.”

– ISI Report, 2015
