General Details

Sunshine Corner is a full daycare nursery offering professional affordable and loving childcare for children from the ages of 6 months – 5 years old. Our policy is inclusive and includes the care as well as an opportunity for adults and children with special needs to attend. We run throughout the year, including school half terms and holidays. Our curriculum is planned and carefully monitored to ensure that children receive a well balanced, exciting and educational opportunity. We value individuality and work hard as a team to provide personal and loving experiences for the children who attend. All our staff are trained and experienced in child development and ongoing training is maintained. Sunshine Corner is located close to 3 major Military air force bases (Lakenheath, Mildenhall and Feltwell) and we welcome and encourage military families to take advantage of the services that we provide. Our fees are designed to be affordable to all types of families in all types of circumstances. We are a part of the Government Funding Scheme, providing free early education for 3 – 5 year olds. Our hours of operation include full time, sessional, part time and hourly care. Staff are trained and aware of the importance of planning, monitoring and developing children’s development as an individual. At the very start, every child is assigned a key worker who will take responsibility for carefully managing their progress. Our curriculum is wide based, interesting, informative and enjoyable as children are encouraged to learn through play and build the necessary skills in preparation for starting school. We have a trained Special Educational Needs Support Worker available all week for children with particular special educational needs. We encourage family values and a community spirit and our provision liaises with the local Primary schools and other childcare facilities in the area.

Our opening times are 8 until 4. Breakfast club is from 8 am until 9 am. Each session is 9 am till 12pm. Lunch is 12 till 12.30 and 12.30 till 3.30 is the afternoon session. But we are open to 4 most days if you require that extra half hour.
