Fairstead House School and Nursery

A Co-Educational Preparatory Day School and Nursery for children from three to eleven years old


Selecting a nursery for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and is vital in ensuring they experience a happy and smooth transition into full-time schooling between the ages of 4 and 5.

Our Nursery is fully integrated within the main school building and has bright, modern accommodation and facilities, with extensive and appropriate indoor and outdoor areas.  Nursery children are welcomed into the ‘Fairstead Family’ as soon as they enter and regularly enjoy shared activities and events with the older children, developing a close bond with the Reception class, which is in the adjoining room.

Fairstead House School is part of the Suffolk County Council Early Years Funding scheme and funding is available for all 3 and 4 year olds and for eligible 2 year olds.  Further information about this scheme can be found under ‘Sessions’ and ‘Fees’

“We firmly believe that a Fairstead Nursery Education is very special and our aim of inspiring children to become enthusiastic, happy and confident learners starts here. If the seeds are set early, the wondrous learning journey continues for life.”

Gareth Williams, Headmaster.
