Offering  Professional and Welcoming Childcare for 2 – 5 year olds in North West Ipswich. Open 8am – 6pm for paying and funded families all year round, we also have places available for 30 hour funded childcare.

We pride ourselves on our highly qualified and passionate staff team. We are a small team which work closely together to provide the best possible care for your child. All staff are trained to stretch and encourage children’s thinking and communication through play and everyday experiences.

The Environment

We are very lucky within our Nursery to have a spacious indoor area within which the children can learn and play. The newly painted rooms are divided into separate sub areas full of rich resources and activities for each age group, such as a reading corner, activity corner, construction corner and small worlds area. The Nursery is set up to allow children freedom to choose resources based on their individual interests and is warm and welcoming.

“Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn.”  Benjamin Franklin

Outdoor Space

At The Nature Den we believe in the importance of outdoor play and encourage the children to be outside daily in our secure garden area. We refreshed the garden area during 2018 in but have exciting plans to renovate it further during 2019. Being so close to the allotment, we also hope to be able to get our own allotment area soon.

We also regularly go on outings around the local community. This enables the children to explore their physical skills, spend time experiencing outdoor activities and have lots of fun.

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.
