    Located on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Nantwich, Sunflowers is set within the grounds of St Anne’s Catholic Primary School . We are a private run nursery which is overseen by the Governing Body of the primary school. With an Ofsted rating of Good we always strive to improve on all of our past achievements. At Sunflowers we believe that children deserve the best possible start to their education. We hope to provide that, both in the Nursery School and in the community, by offering a safe, secure and happy environment in which children will flourish feeling confident and ready to learn. They will be supported by experienced staff including qualified teachers who are all committed to providing quality nursery education and care with first class family support. It's all in THE DETAIL At Sunflowers a bunch of happy, cheerful and content children is our goal. Of course children cry, so don’t expect there never to be a grizzling baby in a good nursery. But as a group, you should be able to see that they’re having fun, making friends and enjoying their time at the nursery. OUR SERVICES Thank you to all the staff and management at Sunflowers for all that you have done for our son. He has loved every minute here and is sad to be leaving to go to school. I would highly recommend this nursery to everyone! The staff here are incredible and made our son feel safe, secure and loved every minute he was in their care. They provide a wonderful calm and stimulating environment for him to learn and grow." ​ Sue Lawson Follow Us On Social Media For all the latest news and events happening @sunflowersatstannes

  • Services | Sunflowersatstannes | England

    We offer a safe, SECURE AND HAPPY ENVIRONMENT Our Services ​ Parents look for many different things when choosing a nursery such as location, price, opening times or recommendation. Whilst all these things are important, our experience tells us that the top priority for most parents is finding somewhere they know their child will be treated with love, care and as a unique individual. The adults providing this need to know and understand the needs of young children and how to respond to them with compassion and respect. ​ This is what you can expect at Sunflowers at St Anne’s. A commitment to building authentic and meaningful relationships with parents which will enable us to provide the very best care and learning opportunities for your child. BABY ROOM Our focus in this room is to provide a calm and warm environment for babies where they feel loved, cared for, and happy to play and explore. Children are cared for in small groups, allowing relationships to build and strengthen and babies to feel confident. With secure relationships in place and knowing each child individually, we can respond to your babies’ needs capably and sensitively. Our baby room team ensure that each individual child’s care such as nappy changing, bottle feeding, weaning and nap times are well understood. The baby room provides lots of exploratory and sensory play opportunities and there is always planned support to meet your child’s individual stages of development. The world is all new to babies and in their first year, they are making amazing discoveries about the world around them. At Sunflowers at St Anne’s we understand that an interested, involved and loving adult is the best toy ever invented for babies! Thoughtfulness, sensitivity, respect and understanding are the key characteristics of our baby room team. TODDLER ROOM With a fantastic open plan space and access to the Woods and outdoors every day, toddlers are busy painting, splashing, building and making new friends. This unique stage of children’s developments needs knowledgeable, playful and empathetic adults to help toddlers develop socially and emotionally. We’re here to support parents too, with help and support to help you through toilet training, food phases, emotional & social development to name a few! During this phase, children take massive steps in their development language, new found pretend play, independence, learning to be together, emotional highs and lows and repeated patterns of play are just a few of the things that occupy their day! You will notice that once your toddler turns two and has got the hang of the power of questions, they ask a lot! These questions give us a great opportunity to see what children are interested in, what they are thinking about and importantly, helps us to provide the best experiences for them. Playing alongside children, demonstrating to them that their questions, words or concerns are valued and sharing as much as we can with parents are the priorities of the Toddler staff team. The play experiences we plan for toddlers have children’s social skills as a central focus to help support their growing sense of independence and to encourage confidence and self-esteem. We make sure children have lots of opportunities to join in and, through play, help them to understand other people’s thoughts and feelings, always encouraging tolerance and modelling positive ways of treating others. PRE-SCHOOL ROOM Helping children prepare for school is one of many important elements of what happens in pre-school. Our nursery provides children with access to the outdoors as well as resources, equipment and materials to stimulate and support early learning, creativity and curiosity. By focussing on the children’s own interests and ideas, whether this is puddles, dinosaurs, shadows or bear-hunts, learning is based on a flexible and responsive curriculum. Early literacy skills are well supported by practitioners having a thorough understanding of the process children go through in acquiring these skills. The same curriculum follows your child through to the end of their Reception year and we have strong links with our St Anne’s Primary School and other local Nantwich primary schools to make the transition smooth and your child’s experience a positive one. The balance of teaching and play and a rich learning environment means children are equipped with everything they need to build all the characteristics of effective learning to help them through school.
