Our setting is an 87 place nursery providing care for children from 3 months of age right through to the September following their 5th birthday. We are open from 7.30am to 6.30pm for 51 weeks of the year and offer a wide range of sessions which allows parents the flexibility to arrange childcare which suits their particular needs.

We adopt the Montessori method of supporting children which works alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum in providing a child centered approach to learning and development.

Although not purpose built the building has been sympathetically converted to provide large light and airy rooms. We have 4 base rooms which cater for children between 3-14months, 14-24 months, 24 -36 months and finally our pre-school for 3-5yr olds.

Rating 5_aThe nursery is set in a semi rural location on the outskirts of Berkhamsted in a quiet, peaceful location and has a large garden. This allows the children the opportunity to move freely between the indoor and outdoor environment and experience the fulfillment of tending the vegetable plot and growing their own plants as well as exploring nature and making good use of the bird hide and willow den.

The large covered outdoor classroom also allows children the opportunity to access the curriculum and have lots of fresh air and exercise during spells of inclement weather.

We have a very proactive and well supported parent liaison committee who help coordinate social events for existing parents as well as providing a contact point for new and prospective parents.

At Sunhill Berkhamsted you will find a committed and dedicated team of staff who care as much about you as we do your child, thereby ensuring you will receive a warm and friendly welcome from a nursery who can offer you a truly flexible approach to your childcare needs.

Payment by nursery voucher, tax free childcare, including 15 or 30 hours government funded free childcare is available to all qualifying parents and children.
