Welcome to Sunnylands Nursery School

Sunnylands Nursery School was established in 1975 and is a purpose-built school located in Sunnylands, Carrickfergus. Enrolment is 104 and there are four part-time classes. The two morning sessions run from 9:00am until 11:30am and the two afternoon sessions run from 12:30pm until 3:00pm. Sunnylands Nursery School is funded by the Department of Education and operates under the Education Authority, North Eastern Region.

Our school offers a friendly and family-orientated learning environment which enables children to develop to their full potential. Play is the principal means of learning in early childhood so we provide opportunities to explore and experiment through challenging activities. We aim to give children the best advantage in learning early literacy, mathematical concepts, scientific and technological ideas. Creative, imaginative and musical activities form an important part of their daily experiences. Through staff expertise, guidance and praise, children are encouraged to develop self-esteem, confidence and independence.

Our teachers have:

  • high expectations of the children and themselves

  • a passion for raising standards and attainment

  • an engaging teaching style which enthuses and motivates children to learn

  • experience of working well as part of a team

  • a commitment to improving and developing their own practice

    which results in:

  • commitment to continued professional development of all staff

  • children who are eager to learn

  • a highly resourced learning environment

  • a forward-thinking school that is dedicated to the success of all children and staff
