Our Ethos and Values
Sunbeam Pre-school provides high quality early years care and education for children aged 2 years to 5 years and wraparound care, under Section 6 of the Childcare Act 2006, thus ensuring that there is provision of childcare and education for parents who work. Sunbeams Pre-school will open 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday 50 weeks a year (closed for 2 weeks at Christmas and 3 professional training days for Staff in addition to this over the year.)

We recognise the importance of individuality, responsibility, and the sense of community.
We foster the love of learning through exploration, fun and challenge in a safe place, where all children are welcomed, valued, and supported from their unique starting point.
We strive to nurture positive relationships with parents, professionals and agencies to best meet the needs of our children.
To develop and maintain the best possible Early Years provision for children through a story based curriculum.
To be inclusive and welcoming to everyone, developing, and nurturing the sense of belonging.
To encourage children to reach their potential through high expectations for every child.
To be involved in the life of the community, supporting children and their families through strong links with external agencies, and in partnership with parents, feeder schools and settings.
