www.foundationyears.org.uk is a website that provides information for parents about the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
We are also open to follow the child’s interests and choices and we welcome parents’ feedback from home.
At Sunrise, we strive to awaken in the children a joy of learning and a thirst for knowledge that will remain with them all their lives.
Imaginative play, games and stories enhance instruction and the Montessori approach nurtures motivation and concentration. Yoga exercises, sports and a vegetarian diet encourage a healthy and co-ordinated body. Music, arts, dance and drama provide scope for Sunrise children to discover their expressive skills and a deep appreciation of the arts.
Through nature studies, outings and care for animals, a true ecological consciousness awakens in the children who come to feel themselves as part of Nature.
At Sunrise, the children practice a simple form of meditation. Feeling love within each day develops a direct experience of the inner self and a feeling of oneness with others and the world around.
Sunrise’s unique curriculum imparts character building values, integrity, moral courage, self-confidence, self-reliance and a spirit of service.
