Our Nursery welcomes the whole family to join us in partnership to ensure your child feels safe, secure and to let your little one discover new adventures, learn, grow, and thrive.
Situated close to Ipswich School, near Christchurch Park, The Lodge is easily accessible in the heart of Ipswich.
The attractive building offers bright, spacious rooms, a large garden and outdoor environment to play in and free car parking spaces to drop off your child.
Our delicious food is locally sourced and cooked on the premises by our own chef. We provide food, selected nappies and milk so you don’t have to worry about bringing things in.
The Nursery will be open all year round (apart from Christmas week and a week in August) from 7.30am until 6.00pm. We also offer the option of a term time only place for families with children already at Ipswich Prep/Ipswich School.
Aims and ethos
We want to communicate with you and we value the parental partnership highly in working together to make sure your child feels happy.

We want to encourage potential, by rewarding positive behaviours. We are proud of the children so that they can feel proud of themselves and of each other.
For each individual. For the community.
For each other. For others.

For the transforming power of education to realise potential.
Within each individual, our pupils and our staff, to grow and excel in all that they do.
