Your Nursery Manager

Nursery Manager: Kay Fynn

“Hi, my name is Kay and I’m the Nursery Manager here at Kids Play Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery & Pre-School.

I have XX years experience in childcare and have a Level x in childcare, along with being a SEN and designated safeguard officer.

It is such a pleasure to be Nursery Manager of this fantastic setting. Our Day Nursery & Pre-School is for babies from 6 weeks old up to 5 years of age. However, we do also offer wraparound care for children up to 12 years of age.

Our setting has an emphasis on nature-based learning. Our designated age appropriate rooms allow children to freely move indoors and outdoors, where they’ll be exposed to an abundance of nature based experiences, using natural resources, such as mud kitchens, sand and water play and ‘real’ vegetables for play kitchens. One of our teaching approaches is ‘Planning in the Moment’, where children’s interests are turned into learning experiences. Click Here to download our free eBook about the approach.

If you would like your child to attend our Day Nursery & Pre-School you can download our registration form here. Once completed please send onto
