The Sunshine Centre

Welcome to Little Marvels Nursery Services at The Sunshine Centre

The Sunshine Centre is situated in a secure area on The Hewens College Campus in Hewens Road, Hayes. The nursery offers full daytime care for children aged between 3 months and 5 years old. The nursery is open all year round from Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.00am – 6.00pm.
 
We have strong links with the primary schools within The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust. This collaboration supports the transition for our children as they transfer from nursery to mainstream school.  We work closely with Hewens Primary school offering a drop off and pick up service for children who attend the school nursery through the 30 hour funding scheme.
The nursery is situated in a prime location, in close proximity to London Transport links.

Pre-School Room

At pre-school level, we aim to develop independent learning, inquiring and listening skills as well as communication and social skills.  Our children participate in structured interactive activities for language and literacy in the Early Years including developing listening, attention and memory skills, as well as an increasing understanding to sequencing, sound and letter recognition. In addition, we also offer focussed learning experiences to ensure that all our children are provided with solid foundations to enable them to continue to flourish as they enter school years.  
 
At Little Marvels Day Nursery we are committed to promoting equality and valuing diversity, in an inclusive and supportive environment for all children, parents and carers.  We celebrate festivals throughout the nursery, embracing all cultural festivals important to our children and their families.
