  • About Sunny Days

    In 1995, directors Joy and David Scadden, launched Sunny Days Nurseries with a simple vision: to provide the best quality childcare for children in Dorset. Twenty years on, and with their own children pursuing their adult lives, they have created a family of high-quality nurseries across Dorchester and Bridport.

    “We always knew a ‘simple’ vision wouldn’t be so in practice,” says Joy, who is also an NVQ Assessor, IQA, and adult teacher. “I was concerned with finding the very best carers for our children and this, ultimately, meant us having to bring the qualification opportunities up to a leading standard in the UK.”

    • My son is happy at Sunny Days. He always seems happy and entertained when we come to pick him. The staff team is really good and makes us and H feel valued and respected. H is always excited when going to nursery, something that he would not do if he did not feel safe and secure.

    • So many staff say hello, goodbye and use my child’s name when we arrive and when we leave this makes me feel my child is valued by all staff.

    • Overall, we are delighted with Sunny Days and would recommend you to anyone. The care is excellent, ‘E’ is very happy and confident and we have no concerns about her at all.

    Having great, qualified teams means a huge range of activities and learning opportunities through play is possible on each visit to Sunny Days. Each nursery has tailored environments to make the best of the available space, and we continually communicate with parents to discover how to make them even better.

    “Finding a balance for parents, between cost and benefit, is a challenge we relish – we’re parents too!” continues David, a childcare and social work professional for over 30 years. “I want to develop environments of understanding, communication, and respect, for value in real-terms.”
