Sunny Days Nursery, Preschool and Play Club

Both our settings have been professionally cleaned, killing up to 99.99% of all viruses, incl COVID-19 and this lasts for 6 months. Now 6 months later we have invested in our own fogging machines to decontaminate our own setting on strict cleaning rota''s. Children are at the very heart of everything we do here at Sunny Day Nurseries: we provide exceptional childcare in an environment that inspires learning and development through fun and play. Our extraordinary early years practitioners, highly qualified teams and over 25 year industry experience gives parents confidence and peace of mind. Our Mum''s and Dads feel happy in the knowledge that their child is being given the best opportunity to flourish and make friends in a secure and safe environment.
