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 April/May 2017.

Baby Room

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

Baby Room:

In the last couple of months, the baby room has welcomed lots of new faces to their room. They have been spending lots of time in the garden, watching the bubbles with excitement as they have blown in the wind. Leading on from this, the babies investigated more bubbles in the water tray where they ‘washed up’ various pots, pans and utensils. As part of their sensory development, the babies have been focusing on light and dark with the use of flashing lights and glow sticks.

Toddler Room

Toddler Room
From 24 to 36 months
Ratio 1:4

Toddler Room:

During the month of April, the toddler room has been celebrating Easter by exploring different Spring objects. The children displayed lots of interest in the sensory tray which included various Spring animals and Easter surprises. The children participated in an Easter egg hunt, searching for different coloured eggs located in the garden.

This month the toddler room have developed the sensory aspects of the garden. The children have particularly enjoyed watching the array of items added to the fences, which have reflected against the sun. They have also been using different utensils and containers in the mud kitchen, creating ‘yummy’ mud pies and emptying and filling the pots and pans.

 

Pre-School Room

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

Pre-School Room:

The Pre-Schoolers have been busy exploring the fruit and vegetables we have on offer in the room, such as using them as mark making tools in the paint, printing with them, tasting them, chopping them up and promoting their fine motor skills by hammering a selection with golf tees.

One of the children brought in some tadpoles from their garden pond. The Pre-Schoolers showed lots of interest in this, which led to us learning about a selection of life cycles. Some of the children even used lots of strips of tissue to wrap up in, representing a cocoon.

 

Bear In Mind

Important Things To Bear In Mind

As the weather has turned cooler, please can we ask that parents provide appropriate clothing (coats, wellies, hats, scarves and gloves) so that your children can continue to access the outdoor environment.

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.
