Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery and Pre-School
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 November-December 2016.
From 6 weeks to 24 months
During the month of November the babies have been exploring using their senses. We have some new sensory bottles and had great fun getting messy with the spaghetti and paint to create our fireworks pictures.
Throughout December, we will be getting festive, creating cards and decorations for our loved ones.
From 24 to 36 months
The toddlers have been exploring a range of natural materials as we move through the Autumn season. This has included threading with conkers, promoting the use of numeral language and development and developing their fine motor skills. We have also been leaf printing, making marks using a range of colours.
The toddlers have shown a recent interest in insects in our outdoor area so we are going to go on to hunt mini beasts and look at their different features. With the colder weather we are going to explore some wintery experiences and begin the build up to Christmas!
From 3 to 5 Years
Thus month the preschool have been working on their colour recognition. To support this we introducing a new colour each week to the children. The children have shown a keen interest in the change of season and all thing “autumnal”.
