Sunflowers


Our Sunflowers are our preschool children.  During their time in the preschool, the children will be developing their skills in preparation for their journey into school.

The Sunflower room is able to support children who are eligible for the Early Years Funding.  We also have places for children who are fee paying and for families in receipt of childcare vouchers.  Our current rate for a Sunflower place is £12.00 per 3 hour session and is reviewed annually.  We also claim for Early Years Pupil Premium for our Sunflowers.  Jo, our setting manager, can help you with this or you can complete a form here.  The playschool will need to see evidence of the code provided.  From September 2017 we will be offering 30 hours funding to eligible families.

The team in our Sunflower room have a wide range of experiences and qualifications that provides the best learning environment for the children in our care.  The team are striving to meet the children's growing learning potential through an ever changing space that includes:

  • A covered garden
  • Access to the larger garden
  • Art and Messy room
  • Home 'corner'
  • Snack area​
  • Floor space for different forms of play
  • Learning zones such as maths, reading and mark making
  • Computer and interactive whiteboard
  • Child height toilets 
  • Investigation space (including a tool bench with real tools)


A vast majority of learning occurs during play that is supported and scaffolded by the skilled practitioners within the Sunflower team.  We then develop learning through our group time programme that includes:

  • Letters and Sounds
  • Read Write Inc
  • Dough Disco; and
  • Squiggle whilst you Wiggle


These programmes support future learning as children head into school.  An overwhelming majority of our children move on to Warwick Primary School, so we try to build a foundation that compliments their curriculum.
