Parents Information


Early Years Framework

At Sunflowers Pre-School we follow the Early Years Framework. For more details on this follow this link....

The document 'What to expect, when?' is a really useful guide for parents. Please let us know if you would like to borrow a paper copy.

In The Moment Planning

We believe in child-led play and that children will be learning and developing at the highest level when they are highly engaged in play. The environment is set up to allow the children to explore and investigate at their level and in their own time with highly skilled staff supporting and extending their experiences.

Focus Child

Your child will have weeks when they are our focus child. We will ask for your input the week before regarding any new events happening in their life, interests and giving you the opportunity to ask any questions about their time with us. During this week you will receive more observations and shortly after we will invite you in to talk about your child's learning and development and how we can work together to continue to support their progress.


We use an online learning journal which you will receive observations of your child through. We also encourage you to send some back to us in the same way so that we can create a complete picture of your child and their journey. Below is a link to Tapestry log in....


Termly newsletters will be sent out to keep parents updated with changes and important dates as well as regular safeguarding reminders. Please follow this link...

Contact Us

You are always welcome to contact us with any queries or questions or arrange to come in and have a chat in private about your child regardless of whether it is their focus child week or not.

Key Person Information

 We operate a key person system when working with the children, please see a link to the documents below which explain more about this approach.
