Otley Under Fives is a fabulous day care nursery including before and after school clubs in purpose built premises in the grounds of Otley Primary school in the heart of the Suffolk Countryside, just North of Ipswich. This new venue is light, bright and spacious and brimming with exciting toys, crafts and games for the children to play with.
We believe that it is important for the children to have a choice of activities and the room is sub-divided to ensure that each child can engage in their individual interests, whether that be learning through role-play in the dressing-up corner; exploring the books in the reading corner or drawing and making things with our extensive range of craft materials . The space is also designed to be as homely and welcoming as possible with cosy cushions, soft rugs and low-level shelving to give the children easy access to the extensive range of toys on offer.
The main room also has access to the outdoor area and all children are actively encouraged to make use of the exterior facilities come rain or shine! We have a cohesive range of ride-on vehicles as well as a playhouse and mud kitchen.
We are a small pre-school and pride ourselves on a friendly, homely atmosphere and a superb knowledge of each of the children in our care meaning that we can tend to individual interests and requirements. Fresh and healthy meals are prepared and cooked in our kitchen on site.
Ofsted said, “Children play together well, they are kind and thoughtful and older ones enjoy the
responsibility of helping the younger children. Staff are careful to make sure that all
children learn to make independent choices. Parents say their children love attending
and are safe and well settled in the pre-school.”
