General Details

Garden House NurseryA place where children socialise with other children, feel secure, build their confidence & independence, aspire to learn and enjoy themselves! Professional childcare, for 0 - 5 year Olds, in a homely environment.

At Garden House you will find one of the most forward thinking and progressive nurseries, combined with traditional good service and high quality childcare. Established in Ipswich town centre in 1995, Garden House has continued to expand the service it offers and improve the way it is provided, through innovation and ethical practice. At the heart of the Nursery is our ethos that we should care for children in a homely, professional environment and at the same time care for the environment itself.  Helping where we can to secure a future for those children to live in.

We are a Makaton friendly nursery and in 2018 achieved MAKATON FRIENDLY status.

We provide parents with access to TAPESTRY – online learning journal, where we record children’s individual learning and development. This gives parents instant access to their child’s learning at convenient times and also aids them in supporting their child’s learning & development at home.

We offer Morning, Afternoon or Full Day sessions, 8am - 6pm, all year round for children aged 0 - 5 years. We also provide Early Years & Two-year-old Funding, during Term Time, for those children entitled to it (subject to availability)

Please contact us via email for current availability.
