The Peartree Kindergarten

Day nursery

This Peartree Kindergarten is  a family run nursery inspired by children’s curiosity and love of the natural world. We are dedicated to promoting a rich learning environment with experiences full of awe and wonder. With a child centred approach; children learn, progress, and develop independence through play, exploration and interaction with devoted staff and community.

We offer childcare in Ipswich for children aged 0-11 years. including the government funded 15 & 30 hour sessions. The nursery was rated as 'Good' by Ofsted in January 2017.

At The Peartree Kindergarten, you will find an inclusive,  progressive nursery offering the highest quality of care and education. We believe that we have something different to offer your child. From the moment we open our doors, we hold true to the following fundamental aims:

• To value, support and respect each child for the individual they are.

• To look after and educate our children in a way which helps them to feel secure, cared for and listened to.

• To provide an environment which is both safe and stimulating, where children can play, explore and learn at their own pace.
