Happy Tots Pre-School

Pre-School Playgroup

Our pre school is based in East Ipswich and has been successfully running since June 1981.     The pre-school is run by a voluntary committee in accordance with the Children’s Act 2006. We lease the main hall at Landseer Road Methodist Church. We have our own extension from this hall which comprises of a secure entrance, toilets, office, clockroom and use of a kitchen. We have a secure outside garden area for physical play. Happy Tots is ideally situated in the middle of the following primary schools; Morland Road, Ravenswood, Pipers Vale, Murrayfield, Rosehill and Cliff Lane. Children attending the pre school  make friends and move onto nurseries with children they know. All staff, committee members and regular volunteers hold enhanced DBS check. Our staff all hold qualfications in Early Years and childcare Level 2 or above and receive regular training.  All staff hold current certificates in Food Safety, Safeguarding and First Aid. Happy Tots is a very friendly pre school and we are always keen to answer any questions you have. Children can start with us from 2 years old and we aim to help your child settle in quickly and enjoy their stay with us whilst learning through play. Government funding is provided and we are able to access funding for children aged 2, 3 & 4 years old. For more information on funding or our setting, please visit www.happytotspreschool.co.uk or email happytots290@gmail.com, We also hold Millie mark for first aid awareness
