Vision Statement

We partner with parents to create moments that families remember, stories for them to share and enable passionate learners whilst in and beyond our care.

About Us

The Sunflower Childcare Group is dedicated to fostering a nurturing and supportive childcare partnership with parents throughout the Tameside area. Our commitment extends beyond simply providing care; we strive to educate children from their earliest days through their journey into school and beyond.

At Sunflower, our team of dedicated professionals is driven by a deep passion for both care and education. We hold a clear vision and set high expectations for each unique child, recognising their unique abilities and potential. By forming a strong partnership with families, we work collaboratively to educate and innovate, equipping children with the necessary skills and mindset to become confident, resilient, and lifelong learners.

We firmly believe that our role encompasses much more than traditional education. While we prioritise academic growth, our holistic approach emphasises the development of essential life skills, social-emotional well-being, and fostering a love for learning. By providing a safe, stimulating, and inclusive environment, we aim to instil in children a sense of curiosity, exploration, and a desire for continuous personal growth.

Through our comprehensive programs and tailored support, we go above and beyond to ensure that children are well-prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. We strive to empower each unique child to reach their full potential, building a solid foundation for their future success. At the Sunflower Childcare Group, we are committed to making a lasting impact on the lives of children and families within our community. We offer a safe environment where your children become confident learners, equipping them with the skills for their journey into school and beyond.
