I did bit of research before deciding Sunshine as it was my little one’s first nursery and I feel now it was very much right decision.

My daughter started to pick-up numbers, alphabet, rhymes quickly when she started with nursery. She was too addicted to television, tablet before, but when she started SunShine, her interest changed very quickly. Now at home, she keeps drawing, painting, sticking or ask us for reading books. First thing she asks after she wakes in the morning is papers and pen to draw. In-house Library, Music sessions, Children’s parties, Animals club, football matches e.t.c are really fantasy. Most important thing is attitude of the staffs. I had gone for viewing many nurseries but here you can understand how caring the staff is within 15 minutes. They are very much approachable, really caring about the kids, they know about each and every needs of kids, we can always feel safe that we are left kids in safe hands. People who look for kids developmental needs than highly sophisticated infrastructure, I always suggest Sunshine is the best in Croydon.

My son has attended for 2 years and I have always been impressed with the care and attention given to him and all the other children. All staff are ready to listen and my observation is the children are always happy. My son settled in really well and has never complained about his experience at the Nursery. I am sorry to see him leave to reception and hope he is as happy at Sunshine Day Nursery when he moves on to big school!

Sunshine has been a very good nursery for my son. He has been there for 3 years and not once have I thought of taking him out - even when I moved out of the area!

I believe they have treated my son as an individual and genuinely enjoyed and nurtured his personality and interests.

I would give a "Good" rating for value if they had supplied nappies.

We are blessed to find this nursery for our daughter who started here on Nov 20111 and now leaving on 29 August 2014. In few words, we can say this is an excellent and secure setting, staff is very well trained, loving, caring and responsible. They build lovely personalities, very cosy and friendly environment, focus on key aspects and education. Overall 5/5 as a parent.
