Sunflowers Nursery School

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to provide care and education for the children of key workers. Should your family need any support at this difficult time do not hesitate to get in touch with us

Sunflowers Nursery is an early years provision for children from birth to five. The setting also offers before and after school club for children attending the local primary school (please see other items listed within the directory, or ring the setting for further advice). The setting has four areas, the baby room, nursery room, little pre-school and big preschool. The children are given opportunities to learn through play and enjoy adult-led activities such as storytime, listening activities, singing and music. The rooms are equipped with all the tools necessary to enjoy messy activities and craft, painting, water and sand play and other livelier activities to build up the children's muscles and coordination. The nursery has the main playroom which provides a comfortable area to play and relax, as well as a messy area where the children will receive their meals and enjoy the messy activities. The nursery room and baby room has its own sleep room and toilet/potty area. The outdoor space is plentiful, allowing the children to explore the sandpit, mud pit and kitchen and even the outdoor water tap.

The nursery is owned and managed by Sunflower Smile Limited, the main directors being Nicola and Aloesi Waqalevu who both have previous experience in working with both children and adults in the education and care fields. Sunflowers Nursery School is Ofsted registered to care for children from birth to five years and follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) standards and curriculum. We are located next to St Botolph's church in Saxilby, which is a thriving and growing village approximately 6 miles from Lincoln, just off one of the main routes into the city. The nursery is in receipt of the government grant for eligible 2, 3 and 4-year-olds. Those children entitled to the 30 hours funding are also welcome within the setting.

Thank you for showing an interest in our Nursery School. We hope that this web site will give you not only factual information but an insight into the philosophy supporting our approach to childcare.
