About Us

Established since 1991 Sunhill Daycare operates over the counties of Cambs, Bucks, Herts and Essex and is underpinned by the management structure and resources, of a small group. Sunhill has grown progressively, but not to the detriment of quality or service. All Sunhill nurseries are rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.  Our team of professional carers provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment for children to develop early learning skills using the latest best practice. Sunhill operate from a variety of premises, ranging from purpose built to a listed Manor House. We endeavour to preserve the character of the premises occupied by our nurseries, yet they all meet the same standards for security, health and hygiene.

Sunhill understand the difficulties faced by parents in entrusting the care of a very young child to others. However, we believe the high standards we set ourselves, our staff, and our nurseries will provide the necessary reassurance to parents when entrusting us with the care of their child. Our nurseries accept children aged from 3 months to 5 years, and pre-school children are taught using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Approach to early years education.

The Story of Sunhill

The history of Sunhill nurseries dates back to the 1960’s when teacher, Mrs Ione Banner opened one of the earliest children’s nurseries in the country at The Mount, a large Victorian House in Sun Hill, at Royston in Hertfordshire. It operated successfully for several years, and closed shortly before the Chapman family acquired the property in 1985. Following a late addition to their family, and their inability to locate suitable childcare in the area, they decided to re-open the nursery in 1991 to provide care for their own daughter, and other children in area. The location of the first nursery in Royston is South facing and one of the highest points in the town, hence the name ‘Sun Hill’. The owners could think of no better name for a children’s nursery.

The Euro Name

Having commissioned a project to investigate the provision of childcare by ski tour operators, Sunhill embarked on a project to improve crèche facilities in European Ski resorts. Thus Sunhill Daycare (Europe) Limited was established, and with increasing emphasis on Europe, we consider it appropriate to maintain this.
