We are a Community nursery situated within St Alphege CE Infant school that offers flexible term time only provision from a child’s 3rd birthday. We are proud of the high quality provision that Sunbeams has offered our families since opening in January 2007. We are able to offer the universal 15 hour funded childcare and for families who are eligible, up to 30 hours funded childcare.
The nursery is managed by a skilled and enthusiastic team of staff led by Mrs Gemma Keeble and Mrs Amanda Humphreys both experienced qualified Early Years teachers, who work closely to plan, reflect and guide learning for every child.
Currently, all 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week during term time of free childcare, up to a maximum of 570 hours per year. At Sunbeams your child can enjoy 5 free, 3 hour sessions of quality educational learning through play each week and we make this available to you from your child’s 3rd birthday. These sessions may be distributed over the week as you require subject to availability. We are also able to access Free For 2 funding.
You can be flexible in your attendance and share your free provision between two nursery settings. You can also purchase additional sessions and your child may attend up to ten sessions a week.
All sessions are subject to availability and will be awarded according to our Admissions Policy which is available to view in full on the school website.
