Brand New Nursery Setting

Now open in a brand new, state-of-the-art setting, Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery and Pre-School provides the very best in childcare for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years of age.

We acknowledge and value children’s play and exploration as a powerful way in which they develop, so it is important that children have access to age appropriate resources in every room to meet their individual needs and to promote their choice and independent learning, all following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

Plus, each of the Nursery and Pre-School rooms have free-flow access into their own secure garden areas, all purpose-built for optimum play and development, including sandpits, gazebos, mud kitchen, role play hut, tyre, bridge and balancing beam. The Nursery also boasts an onsite kitchen complete with a qualified chef that cooks healthy snacks and meals every day for each age group.


Working With Parents

We actively work in partnership with parents and guardians to ensure healthy, happy children who are ready for mainstream school and hold regular Parent’s Evenings to keep you up to date with your child’s progress.

To ensure that children are safe in their surroundings, our parent entrance area at the Nursery is accessible by a secure finger print entry system and contains a children’s library with seating for both parents and children to read stories together as well as take books home to enjoy too.


News From The Rooms

Welcome from the Bury St Edmunds Nursery & Pre-School rooms, with all the latest childcare news in June/July 2017.

Baby Room

Baby Room
From 6 weeks to 24 months
Ratio 1:3

Baby Room:

The Babies had a great time getting messy, they have been exploring paints with a variety of tools such as brushes, sponges and bricks…it wasn’t long before they started to make marks with their own bodies! We have some artists in the making!

The babies continued to use their senses through other messy materials such as gloop, fairy dust (flour, baby oil and glitter), shaving foam and much more.

Many of the babies have shown an interest in books recently so we have been looking at a variety of touchy-feely and noisy books. We plan to introduce puppets to our cosy area to promote speech and social skills

Toddler Room

Toddler Room
From 24 to 36 months
Ratio 1:4

Toddler Room:

The Saplings have spent a lot of time in the garden developing physical skills, and exploring and playing in the changeable weather such as riding on bikes, using the slide and attempting to walk along balance beams and stepping stones.
An interest in animals led them to explore the small world of animal’s puppets and pictures of animals in books. They could link animal pictures to the sounds they made and had fun using their imaginations pretending to be animals.

During July, we have developed their control and tools by carrying out a variety of cooking activities and providing the children with an assortment of spoons, scoops, pots and pans to explore and experiment with the mud kitchen.

Pre-School Room

Pre-School
From 3 to 5 Years
Ratio 1:8

Pre-School Room:

In June we had a visitor, a rather large Falcon. The children were fascinated, they learned about what they eat, where they live and some were brave enough to stroke him!

The garden has been popular recently and the children have been showing an interest in the environment around them. They have been planting different seeds around the garden and learning about plant life cycles and how to care for them.

July is a busy month with lots of preparation for many of our Pre-School children leaving us to go to big school. They have visited their new school and some had their teacher visit them at the nursery. They all seem very excited to start their new journey.

We had a Graduation Ceremony to mark their journey with us. The children dressed up in caps and gowns for a big party. We had lots of fun and we will miss them lots.

Staff respond well to children's interests and are actively engaged in their play, chatting to them about what they are doing, supporting them in their play and helping them to persevere when the activity gets difficult. As a result, children are motivated and keen to learn and are developing the key skills needed for the next stage in their learning.
