1 Nursery & 1 Preschool
One guarantee of qualified childcare
Sunshine Nursery & Preschool Ltd was established in Guernsey over 20 years ago by Proprietor, Rachael Hockey SRN. Rachael trained as a nurse in England and moved to live and work in Guernsey in 1977 in the hospital's 'intensive care unit' .
As a working mother with two young daughters, Rachael knew exactly what she wanted from nursery education and with adequate nursery schools thin on the ground in those days, Rachael set about taking the necessary qualifications and set up her own nursery and pre-school.
The rest, as they say, is history!
Sunshine Nursery & Pre-school Ltd operates a dedicated nursery school for children under two from Cordier Hill where the Pre-school is also based.
Sunshine Nursery & Preschool Ltd
"To provide a safe, secure and happy environment for your child to develop his or her social and educational skills to their full potential at their own pace."
We ensure that our nursery school and preschool offer a spacious, safe, child friendly, and, above all, stimulating environment with all the facilities necessary to provide your children with the very best nursery education on the island.
At Sunshine Nursery School & Preschool Ltd we have designed and implemented our own special curriculum which is based on the Early Learning Goals used by Guernsey & UK infant schools.
This has enabled us to develop an extremely good working relationship with all the infant schools in Guernsey, making the transition from nursery education much easier when the time comes for your child to leave Sunshine.
We recognise every child as an individual and so mutual respect between staff and children is one of our highest priorities
Situated in the centre of St Peter Port, Guernsey, Cordier Hill accommodates 90 children between the ages of six weeks to five years.
With full facilities including secure nurseries, cots and play areas, we can also provide for up to 12 babies.
This modern building was previously an infant school and has thus been ideal to transform to a pre-school and nursery school. It has large, light and spacious rooms, safety flooring and outside play areas.
