Please note we are not charging parents to hold their child’s space, if they are not ready to return on 1st June.
Extra COVID-19 Measures
Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery is one of the Kids Play Nurseries that remained open throughout the lockdown for vulnerable children and those of keyworkers. Extra COVID measures are already in place.
These measures include the children working in smaller bubbles, children’s temperatures been taken upon arrival, increased hand-washing and equipment being full wiped down before use by your child’s bubble. You can read more about the full COVID-19 measures here.
We are currently taking new registrations for admissions from 1st June. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details or speak to your Nursery Manager if you are an existing parent.

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.

Nature Based Play
At Kids Play we believe learning should be an adventure, which is why our learning is based around nature-based play!
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!
All our Day Nurseries & Pre-Schools are Ofsted registered. Our Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery and Pre-School were last inspected in September 2016 and received a ‘Good’ rating.
Here at Kids Play having a strong parent partnership is vital. Here’s what some of our Bury St Edmunds parents had to say about the Day Nursery & Pre-School.
Rich Learning Environment for all ages
Nature based play grows confidence, social skills and self esteem.
A message for prospective parents – If looking to book a Showround at one of our Day Nurseries and you or any member of your family have been outside of the UK in the last 14 days, we ask that you request a booking at least 14 days after returning to the UK.
