Laxfield Pre-School is open to children from ages six months to five years. We have a dedicated Baby Room for children between six months and two years, and our main room takes children from two to five years.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive setting, open to all ethnicities, and religious and cultural backgrounds. We have four fully trained members of staff specialising in Special Education Needs and Disabilities, and every member of Laxfield Pre-School has undertaken Autism training. We use Makaton on a daily basis through all children’s routines to support language development, and we incorporate PECs (Picture Exchange Communication System) into every school day to support their emotional growth.

We work closely with Suffolk Early Years advisors and provide personalised care for each individual child, tailoring our approach to support each child’s learning.

We offer a free stay and play session for children interested in joining our pre-school please contact us for more information.
