Full Day Nursery & Childcare in Ipswich, Suffolk
Birch Farm Children's Nursery near Ipswich, Suffolk opened in 1991 and has developed into a 100 place childcare centre with additional facilities such as our on-site swimming pool and play barn.
In July 2016, we fitted a Video door entrance system as we felt that would enhance the security of the nursery for attendees.
We have over 90 sessions that you can chose from starting at 7:30am and finishing at 6:30pm Do you work shifts? then we may be able to help. Unlike other nurseries, we will look at your shift pattern and try to fit your Childcare needs around your shifts, shift patterns are already in place for parents within the setting. We are also happy to offer additional one off sessions and swap sessions subject to availability for those unpredictable life experiences.
The nursery has 4 sections to accommodate children's ages and stages of development with children progressing through our sections at their own individual rate (some limitations as laid down by our registration terms and conditions).
Owl’s are able to provide a choice of either term time or full year care and we are able to take children receiving the Early Education Grant Funding in this section.
Set in 60 acres of rural Suffolk Countryside, Birch Farm is a family run business with its own swimming pool and play barn.
Birch Farm Nursery is able to offer a unique day-care experience for your child/children which is why parents across Ipswich and Suffolk bring their children to Birch Farm rather than other nurseries in our loacl area. Ample private parking ensures parents/carers can spend as much time settling their child as they need to.
We aim to provide a safe and stimulating environment with qualified and very experienced staff, including 3 team members who have their Early Years Professional Status Qualification and a further 3 working towards this. Early Years Professional Status is a qualification that recognizes their professionalism and is equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status; the government are aiming to have 1 EYP in every setting by 2015.
All rooms have their own team of staff who are keypersons to groups of children ensuring they plan for the children's present stage of development by undertaking daily observations and using these observations to plan for the present and next stage of development.
The management team also work alongside the staff on a regular basis providing a positive role model and support.
Each room within the nursery has its own separate section and we have 2 grassed play areas and a large tarmac playground.
Children also have access to our indoor/outdoor barn - a converted farm barn containing a variety of experiences such as a role play area and ample space to for ride on toys.
The barn ensures children have access to outdoor play regardless of the weather providing shelter and protection from rain and direct sun as required.
The nursery is able to care for children from 6 weeks to 10 years with our holiday care being available to run in line with the Hadleigh Pyramid school dates. We take on children from all over Ipswich and Suffolk and always welcome new faces.
