St. John's Playtime Pre-school is a friendly, committe-run pre-school based in East Ipswich. We are open from 8.15am-4.30pm each weekday during term-time.
Most children who attend our pre-school go on to attend the local primary schools in our area including Britannia, Sidegate, Clifford Road, Rosehill and St John's.
We offer flexible hours for families and funding can be used for any hours during the day. We offer spaces for children who are entitled to 30 hours funding and are also signed up to the Tax-Free Childcare scheme (more details can be found at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk).
We offer both fee paying and funded spaces for children, and accept childcare vouchers as payment. Families are also able to use 'Golden Tickets' with us.
We can accommodate up to 34 children per session and are our staff are all trained in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We are based in a large hall in St John's UR Church and also have the use of a secure, enclosed garden area outside with a big sandpit.
We offer a range of different activities for all our children including messy play, small world play, sensory play and role play. We also have a quiet room stocked with books and soft toys.
