About Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery & Pre-School

At Kids Play our Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery & Pre-School, is open Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 6:30pm, for children from 6 weeks to 5 years. 

With an emphasis on nature-based play, The Nursery and Pre-School rooms allow children to freely move indoors and out. Outdoors children can choose from an abundance of activities including water and sand play, the growing patch and even a mud kitchen. Whilst indoors, they use natural wooden toys and ‘real’ vegetables in the play kitchens.

We believe in making learning fun. Using “planning in the moment” teaching, every activity is turned into a learning opportunity.

We also believe it’s vital for children to have external influences. Weekly, a football coach visits for Mini Striker sessions and we regularly take children out in small groups to visit the shops, post office and have even been to visit the vets.

All our food is freshly cooked onsite, our menus are prepared by a nutritionist and all our meat produce adheres to the Red Tractor food standards.

Working with parents and carers

To help build strong relationships with you and your child, you will have a designated key person at Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery and Pre-School.

In between formal reviews, they will provide your daily updates. Our formal reviews tracking your child’s development, happen monthly in the baby room, every 5 weeks in the Toddler Room and every 10 weeks in the Pre-School room.

Should your child require additional support for special education needs, disabilities or speak English as a second language, please ask how the team can help.

We also accommodate the 15 and 30 government grants.

Throughout our Nurseries, you’ll see children play with natural wooden toys, use real vegetables in our role play areas and create outdoor inspired arts and crafts. Watch our video below to see why we embrace nature-based play!
