At Buttons and Bows, rated OUTSTANDING in 2019, we offer childcare in South West Ipswich for 0-5 year olds, open all year round, 8am-6pm for paying and funded families. We also offer 30 hour funded childcare places.

We pride ourselves on our highly qualified and passionate staff team. All staff are trained to stretch and encourage children’s thinking and communication through play and everyday experiences.

The Environment

Our Nursery rooms are warm, spacious and welcoming and divided into three areas depending on the child’s age, the Baby Room (under 2’s), the Toddler’s room (2 – 3 year olds) and the Pre-school Rooms. These rooms are divided into separate sub areas full of rich resources and activities for each age group. All rooms are set up to allow children freedom to choose resources based on their individual interests.

Outdoor Space

All rooms have access to their own outdoor play area which we encourage the children to use come rain or shine. These areas have recently been redeveloped to make them more appealing and play friendly. The children also have daily access to a large field with a purpose built climbing area at the back of the nursery which is owned by the Oaks Community Primary school.

Hot Cooked Lunches

Healthy eating is very important to us, all our meals are nutritiously balanced and cater for all dietary requirements, intolerance’s and allergies. We also buy in fresh fruit every week from the local Greengrocer which is given to the children at snack time.
