General Details

Badingham Playschool is a well established nursery school with experienced, well qualified staff offering quality, affordable childcare to families in Badingham and surrounding villages and towns. We work closely with parents/carers to ensure children settle well and get the most from their pre-school experience. Our curriculum is very varied and is led by children's interests and needs.    We also run 'Woodland Nursery' and 'Farm Nursery' days providing an educational approach to outdoor play in a woodland/farm environment.  We have a base in Framlingham Town which we use on a regular basis to visit Framlingham Castle, the library, fire/police station, local shops and parks.  We organise intergenerational activities with residents from the local care home.  We have good links with a large number of local primary schools and strive to ensure a good transition for each child.  Awarded Suffolk County Council Early Years Educational Setting of the Year 2019.

Fantastic Playschool
I highly recommend this fantastic Playschool. The staff are all great, they always do the very best for the children with lots of activities, outside time, crafting etc and nothing is too much trouble. They are knowledgable and work so hard. They provide lunches and breakfast should you require along with 8am or 830am starts and 430pm or 5pm finishes. There is holiday play scheme days too. Even during this current ‘lockdown’, staff are looking after key workers children and providing support, and advice for the rest of us.These ladies are my heroes.
Amazing staff. My boys love it.
Both of my boys attend Badingham Playschool. F went from 20 months old and H went from 13 months old. Both boys enjoy their days at Playschool so much. The staff are amazing. The children have access to so many different learning activities. They have both thrived being in this environment.
