Our flagship site, the Dorchester nursery is where the Sunny Days story began. Set in what was once a barn on a Dorset farm, the nursery is a custom-built, spacious environment, making the most of its countryside location whilst conveniently situated on Poundbury for easy pick up and drop off.

The Dorchester nursery not only includes a vast garden and outdoor covered classrooms, but a commercial kitchen and soft play climbing structure – a truly unique learning environment for your child.
