Sunnyside Pre-School can be found at Sunnyside Community Hall in the heart of Rusthall in Tunbridge Wells and becomes the second Kent based Play Place Pre-School setting. Sunnyside Pre-School first started operating in January 2020, the staff team worked together to publicise the setting and draw the interest of parents and carers from around the local area.

We ensure that the children and their families are treated to the best childcare, delivered by a staff team with a wealth of knowledge and unparalleled enthusiasm. The staff have come from local educational backgrounds and look forward to maintaining the partnerships gained with these local providers in promoting a community learning environment that will ease the transitions for children leaving us and going to primary school.

With our current group of children, we will be exploring all of the resources that we currently have, using the toys and equipment to further each child’s development. We will begin exploring our outside area and will be utilising lots of different resources that will form our messy play, using porridge, paints, glue, shaving foam, as well as many others

At Sunnyside:

  • Our children come first and are at the heart of everything we do

  • We have close relationships with our parents and the community around us.

  • We strongly follow Play Place's ethos

  • We are a happy, enthusiastic and dedicated staff team

  • Everyone Counts!
