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 November the children in Acorns have been getting messy – exploring a variety of materials such as flour, compost and sand. We love messy play!
The babies have been improving their gross motor skills by engaging in lots of music and movement. They have engaged in cooking experiences, making yummy treats for our Children In Need cake sale – and they rather enjoyed eating them too!
In December the babies will continue to practice their songs for their Christmas sing-along. We are looking forward to hearing the parents and carers join in also.
From 24 to 36 months
Throughout November the children in Sapling’s have been engaged in a range of experiences extending and using their language and communication skills – we have been reading lots of different stories using props and puppets as visual support.
The children have been singing lots of their favourite nursery rhymes and action songs also. Out in the garden we have been developing our gross motor skills by moving in a variety of ways and with the very windy weather we have been using ribbons and materials to dance and move with also. We have been creating some lovely natural collages, finding leaves, twigs and natural materials out in the garden. The children created a range of pictures to celebrate Bonfire Night by experimenting with a range of tools and making marks. We also created mini-turkeys for Thanksgiving.
In December, as Christmas approaches, we will be engaging in and exploring a range of media, materials and colours to create Christmas decorations. We will be singing lots of festive songs to prepare for our Christmas performance and will create Christmas cards for our loved ones.
From 3 to 5 Years
In November, The Tall Oaks had lots of fun using and exploring our new woodwork set. They developed their fine motor skills and displayed understanding of safety as they used the tools. The children have been focusing on promoting their colour recognition by engaging in a range of different sorting and grouping experiences.
In December, the children have been practising for our Nativity, to take place in the middle of December. They have been singing and carrying out actions. The children have displayed excitement for the Christmas period – decorating the Pre-School room and exploring their senses in the fake snow.
