Sunnylands Nursery, Kettering, Northamptonshire

Sunnylands Nursery has been established in the beautiful grounds of St Peter's Independent School in Kettering for many years. The small friendly nursery has large bright rooms which offer a safe, stimulating and supportive environment, coupled with lots of outside space to enjoy having fun and at the same time develop children's naturally enquiring minds.

The small team of staff place great emphasis on positive behaviour and social skills such as good manners, sharing and friendship. As children journey towards more formal education, great emphasis is placed on early reading and writing, in preparation for the more structured learning environment of Reception class.

Fresh and healthy meals are cooked by the chef in fully equipped kitchens and children and staff eat together to promote good table manners.

The nursery accepts children from the term of their third birthday. Flexible session patterns are available to suit the needs of parents, and they accept the Government Early Years Grant and Childcare Vouchers.

The only commitment you are making at Sunnylands Nursery is to give your child the perfect start to a lifelong love of learning! The team warmly invite you to make an appointment to visit.

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Sunnylands Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunnylands Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.868 for Sunnylands Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (251 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 288 Ratings = 4.868

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunnylands Nursery is based on 12 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 9 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

We could not be happier with the care and attention our little girl has had since she started at Sunnylands Nursery. She has made such amazing progress and has really thrived with the support and dedication from the nursery team. She has been fully prepared for her start to Primary education. As parents, we are also delighted that the nursery has upheld our values to ensure she is polite, helpful and kind to others.

Having come from a very competent childminder into the nursery I was not expecting the significant level of improvement that we have witnessed. The expansion of my son's interests has also been incredible. The staff are always welcoming and knowledgeable and you cannot help but feel that your child is in the best possible learning environment. Always excited to go and always happy when leaving.
I could not be happier with our choice of nursery.

It has only been a month since my 3-year-old son started at Sunnylands Nursery and we have seen a dramatic improvement in his academic and social development.
He is very helpful, his vocabulary and speech have improved and he is generally happy to attend nursery. We are very pleased with his development thus far and are looking forward to seeing more improvements as he continues to grow while attending this school.

Sunnylands Nursery is outstanding.
The staff are always more than happy to help.
I have made the staff aware that my child has a speech delay and they have set my daughter some pictures to learn the sounds that are associated, which my child has now achieved.
The staff have a scheme where stories and books can be exchanged every week. The letter books are very useful and supporting my child to learn new words.
My child is learning to potty train and the staff are very supportive whilst we are trying to achieve this. My son had previously been to this nursery and learnt a lot from his experience.
I was very happy to place my second child into this nursery.

My daughter started at Sunnylands Nursery in September 2016.
From our initial visit, I knew it was the best place for her to learn and grow. The staff are qualified and well equipped, they have a modern learning approach but retain the old fashioned values which I feel is so important.
The nursery environment is safe, well equipped, stimulating and fun, there is sound continuity between home and nursery and the staff are very approachable. There are lots of learning opportunities offered, from French to music & movement, ICT, literacy and numeracy, they are really preparing children for school.
I would recommend Sunnylands Nursery to any parent who is looking for early years education for their child.

My daughter has been attending Sunnylands Nursery since September 2015. During this time we have been extremely pleased with how she has progressed. It is like a home from home and the nursery staff provide everything my daughter needs while she is there. She is encouraged in so many ways, be it creatively, with her speech or with the start of her reading and writing journey. I have been very pleased with the nursery and will soon be putting my youngest daughters name down to attend when she is old enough!

We moved our 3-year-old daughter here after she became increasingly unhappy at her previous setting. Within weeks we noticed a difference in her behaviour and she became once again the outgoing, funny little girl we knew at home. She loves going to Sunnylands and has made so many friends, she never even looks back to say goodbye when we drop her off as she's in such a hurry to go! The staff are kind and caring and have really helped develop my daughter's social skills and learning. I would highly recommend this to any parent who wants to be secure in the knowledge that their child will be cared for and nurtured for.

All of the staff at the nursery are friendly and helpful. My son has come on so much in the short time he has attended. He loves all of the staff. He is learning letters and numbers and his communication has improved so much. Moving him to Sunnylands was the best decision I have made for him.

I could not wish for a better Nursery placement for my child (this is my second to be placed at Sunnylands ) The staff are highly experienced, they care and nurture the children which as a parent is exactly what you would wish for given their young age. The resources available to the children are fantastic, they play and learn in a fantastic environment. The staff are always approachable at ALL times. The children are encouraged to be their own little characters but at the same time are caring, sharing to others and respectful. The children are always bringing home their pieces of work, certificates for work achievements. A truly lovely Nursery. I have recommended the Nursery and they too have requested a place for their child are visiting the Nursery.

My daughter loves this nursery. The staff are all very caring and attentive to the children's needs. She has made notable progress with her numbers and letters through the work at nursery. They seem to have an ideal balance of work and play. The children's days at nursery are always varied. I have no doubt that my daughter has benefited enormously by her attendance both socially and academically. It is excellent preparation for reception. I am reassured that she will be well prepared thanks to this nursery.

What a fantastic setting, always such warm welcomes throughout the day. My son settled so well and quickly at Sunnylands after coming from another setting. He always has lots of lovely stories from his day, he has such fun and has made lots of friends.
The extra activities that are offered are just amazing, there are so many opportunities for these children.
As a mother I couldn't wish for anywhere better for my son to be, thank you to all the staff you are amazing!

I have been extremely pleased with level of support and care given to my 3 year old daughter since she joined in Jan 2016. The staff are simply fantastic and the children are provided with such interesting and exciting activities. There is emphasis on politeness and traditional values, alongside the modern resources such as whiteboards and programmable toys. There is an excellent level of communication between parents and staff. We feel secure with dropping our daughter off in the morning, knowing she always has a fabulous time. She has made such progress in her physical skills, vocabulary and she is counting already. With our daughter being one of the youngest, the other children are truly wonderful with her too. There is always a calm, purposeful atmosphere with lots of smiley faces too. We just couldn't ask for more.

Simply the best nurturing and educational start in life for your child. I attended this nursery too many years ago to mention! I sent my eldest son to Sunnylands and now my youngest. That is a testimonial in its self. Traditional family values still remain, within a very modern day approach. When you leave your child at Sunnylands you know they are going to be looked after. You know they are happy, borne out by their behaviour when they don't want to leave but stay and play longer. Excellent.

Our daughter is embarking on her transition to Infant School this week! I would just like to commend Sunnylands Nursery and its truly wonderful and caring staff for ensuring she has the necessary skills and confidence to face this new chapter in her life. From the start we felt the team provided a very safe and secure environment which has encouraged our daughter to express herself clearly and comfortably with respect for others. The Nursery was never chaotic or loud. Instead a very calm, loving, happy and organised environment was very apparent with very satisfied busy children. The staff are always attentive and happy to share any feedback and their time to make sure that your child has the best experience they can give. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. We truly believe we have given our daughter the best possible foundation on which to build.
