General Details

Wellington Nursery merged with Bows and Arrows group in September 2015. Bows and Arrows group has 5 nurseries located in deprived areas of Ipswich. Bows and arrows received an award for being "Educational Setting of the year" in 2015. For more information please go to

We have recently opened a new Pre-school opposite our existing site which caters for 24 children aged 3-5 years. The Pre-school is located within All saints church hall, entrance is from Blenheim road.

Wellington Nursery & pre-school aims to provide quality childcare for children aged 0-5 years with a safe, stimulating, positive environment to enrich every child’s holistic development through structured play and learning opportunities. We aim to give parents/carers the opportunity to access childcare that is quality, affordable, flexible and fully inclusive. We provide easy accessible and affordable childcare to the community of central Ipswich and the surrounding areas. We are a friendly nursery and we welcome your interest and suggestions at all times. Pre-School children will be provided with activities to encourage their confidence in their developing abilities. Children will be helped in their preparation for school by meeting their early learning goals. Additionally we enjoy creating activities to develop your child’s skill in all areas from problem solving reasoning and numeracy to creative development. We have a large outdoor space and a free flow outdoor area which we use all year round. We received a good OFSTED report with aspects of OUTSTANDING. The best way to decide on how you feel about a place is to go and visit it in person. We are very happy to have the opportunity to show you round under no obligation to register so you and your child can experience Wellington Nursery and its wonderful environment and our friendly and welcoming staff. If you give us a call on 01473 233522 to arrange a time we can make sure someone is free to see you.

About us……….

We currently have a few children we are monitoring and supporting with minor developmental delay such as delayed speech and developmental delay. 

Autumn term 2016 - we have two children on role who are tube fed. Staff have received intensive training to support the children's feeding needs. These children also have some complex conditions such as CHARGE syndrome, hearing/sight impairments and cleft palate.

We liaise well with external agencies and encourage staff members to attend therapy sessions, other settings that the child attends and also for the agencies working with the children/families to visit the setting, to provide a better outcome for the child.

We have in the past supported children with Autism, Speech delay, Challenging behaviour and Global delay.

We have wheelchair access to the setting and outdoor area.

We can carry out our own speech assessments as we have two trained staff in Wellcomm. 

Please contact the setting for more information.
