Halesworth Day Nursery is a family owned business set in an old school building in the small market town of Halesworth. Our community offers a range of opportunities and amenities which we often draw upon. It is our local butcher and fruit and vegetable shop who provide food produce for the children to enjoy at nursery during snack and meal times and we regularly enjoy visits to the local library, park, woodland and shops. We are also fortunate to be close to our local children’s centre, with whom we have built a close working relationship and often signpost our parents to the facilities, groups and support that they offer.
The nursery is open Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm for 51 weeks a year, providing childcare for children aged 3 months - 5 years old. The nursery offers 52 places per day and we offer flexible sessions to suit all families. We are a driven and passionate team who are dedicated to helping children to reach their full potential, ensuring a high standard throughout all aspects of the setting. All staff hold relevant qualifications ranging from Level 3 to BA Hons, and our Deputy Manager also holds EYPS. Two members of the team are qualified Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators and are committed to supporting the setting in recognising and meeting children's additional needs. We are an inclusive setting welcoming and celebrating all backgrounds, culture, religion and needs.
The nursery has four playrooms and benefits from a spacious front concrete play area as well as an enclosed back garden. These outdoor areas provide a safe space for children extend upon their play, discovery and learning whilst engaging in a range of outdoor experiences.
We value our relationships with parents and view them as their child’s first and most influential educators. Children are at the heart of all that we do and we actively seek their views during activity and play, staff tune in to children’s reactions, emotions and behaviour to determine whether we are providing an enabling environment.
