What will my child get from attending early years entitlement?
Your child will get the chance to access learning opportunities in an environment that will help to extend their skills and experiences, develop their confidence and build on what they already know.
Is the early years entitlement different at Sunnyside Nursery than at a School Nursery?
No, both settings use the same framework (Early Years Foundation Stage) to deliver quality-learning opportunities for your child.
Will I be expected to pay anything towards my child’s early years entitlement?
Yes. As i am sure you have seen in the media, the government funding does not fully cover the cost of the place and therefore we must charge a small supplement. This is to cover meals and other activities and expenses. We always aim to keep this at a minimum. Please contact us for more information.
Where can I get more information, advice and support?
You can speak to our manager/owner Laura on 01274 613100 or our enquiry form for further information.
