Welcome to Highfield
Nursery School, Children's Centre and Daycare


Highfield Nursery School, Children’s Centre and Daycare is an outstanding setting, situated in West Ipswich, Suffolk. 

Highfield Nursery School

Highfield Nursery School provides exceptional care and education for children from aged two years to five years.

Following our most recent Ofsted inspection, in March 2017, we are delighted to remain Outstanding for the 4th consecutive inspection.

Our Butterflies room delivers education for our youngest pupils; two to three years old; before they move into the Highfield Nursery School rooms, aimed at pupils three to five years old. Pupils are able to attend the setting for mornings, afternoons or full days, between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm.

All three and four year olds are entitled to fifteen hours of FREE education a week with a "registered provider". Highfield Nursery School is also able to offer funded places to two year olds, in our Butterflies room.

In addition to your child's government funded 15 hours, you can now purchase additional hours in nursery school (subject to availability).  This means if you need additional hours outside your child's normal sessions, we may be able accommodate you - but this is subject to available space in the class.  This can be 'one-off' sessions or regular hours each week.  The cost is £4.00 per hour for 3 and 4 year olds and £4.20 per hour for 2 year olds. If you are interested in purchasing additional hours, please chat to your child's teacher or Mollie in the office. 

You may also be eligible to 30 hours of funding.  Please check www.childcarechoices.gov.uk for the eligibility criteria.
