Welcome to Little Larks Day Nursery

Little Larks is a private day nursery & pre-school set in a beautiful countryside location near Nowton Park.  Our nursery is registered for 42 children who are cared for by our team of highly experienced and qualified practitioners.   We take children from 3 months to 5 years old and our opening times are 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.  7.30am starts are available if required and we offer funded places all year round.

You can find us a short way off the A134, between Bury St Edmunds and Sicklesmere.  This makes us well situated to serve local villages such as Rougham, Lawshall and Great Whelnetham and is ideal for people travelling to and from Long Melford and Sudbury.

Our large, light and spacious nursery is full of age specific toys and resources for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to help meet their individual needs and to promote their choice and independent learning.  Babies have their own homely rooms with traditional cots to sleep in, whilst older children in pre-school can enjoy the large open plan layout with plenty of space to roam around! We have a separate 'messy' play area, a cosy reading corner as well as a dark sensory den to snuggle up in!

We are fortunate to have large gardens and a great outdoor learning environment for children to explore.  Our rooms allow for free-flow access into the gardens where we have all the equipment needed for maximum play (and learning!).  We have gazebos, ride on toys, slides, a large sand pit and our very own 'Lark' Ness Monster to climb on.  Children can investigate bugs in our ‘bug hotel’, play with textures and ingredients in our mud kitchen, climb trees or move and transport soil and stones in our construction site!  We often go out for walks to explore the footpaths around the nursery and the children love going to Nowton Park to say hello to the giant panda and feed the ducks! 

Our onsite kitchen has a 5* food hygiene rating and children help to grow their own fruit and vegetables which are used by our chef to cook healthy snacks and meals every day.


At Little Larks children have a key person who will have responsibility for them.  The key person will develop a strong bond with your child as they care for them and give them the reassurance they need to progress and develop.  We work in partnership with parents and will share all information about your child’s day at nursery, which has a positive impact on their learning and development.


We have an 'Open Door' policy, so if you would like to visit us please feel free to call in anytime during our opening hours and we will gladly show you round.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to make a more formal appointment or request further information, please fill in the form below, email or phone and we will be in contact shortly:-

Learning is in
our Nature!

Here's what our parents say...

"Thank you all so very much for making Mena's settlings into nursery such a success.


It is a joy for us to see how much she has grown in confidence and how many new skills and abilities she has got already.


Thank you for making us feel so welcome from the very first day we walked in.


Well done all of you! :)"
