Sunny-Ile is a popular, well established pre-school situated in Ilminster town centre.  We cater for children aged 2 to 4 years old.  We first opened for children 30  years ago. We are at the heart of our local community and since January 1st 2016 have become a part of Greenfylde School.
As a pre-school we are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance, an organisation that promotes good practice and offers a variety of support services.

Daily life in pre-school

 At Sunny-Ile Pre-School we pride ourselves on our understanding of the things that really matter to parents when it comes to childcare. Through the utilisation of our many child care policies and procedures, free settling in sessions for your child, an effective key person system and a key focus on working in partnership with parents at every step, we aim to ensure that your child receives a start second to none.

We operate during term time between 9.00am -3.30pm, offering morning and afternoon sessions plus a lunch club. 


Morning session - 9.00am - 11.45am

Lunchtime session - 11.45pm-12.45pm

Afternoon session - 12.45pm-3.30pm
We offer a safe, nurturing environment in which each individual child is recognised, valued and supported to achieve their potential through meaningful play experiences. Our free-flowing space from indoors to outdoors ensures those children who learn best through active movement can thrive too.  Our environment supports the children’s problem-solving skills and nurturing their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination, inventiveness and resourcefulness.
We provide a varied and interactive Curriculum that concentrates on the Early Years Foundation Stage and develops all children's learning needs.This we achieve through a wide range of equipment and resources, where childrens interests are developed.
