Woodpeckers Private Nursery - Sudbury, Suffolk

Professional childcare in Sudbury, Suffolk

Our aim is to provide quality, professional childcare, day care and pre-school nursery education which is fun, and gives you the assurance your child is looked after within a secure, caring and supportive environment.

Woodpeckers Nursery is a family run nursery that is set on the edge of Sudbury in Suffolk beside the water meadows, in a Georgian style building fully adapted to provide a happy, secure and caring environment to help your child's development at every stage.

Above all we endeavour to create a 'home from home' environment that is nurturing for all of the children. Each child is valued and given the opportunity to develop their potential and discover that learning is fun. It is the start of life's ladder, providing foundations for children's future.

Severe Weather Warning

28th February 2018

Please be aware that in wintery conditions, and when there are severe weather warnings, we may have to close the nursery early, or it may not open in the mornings as usual. With staff living out of the area we cannot always guarantee enough staff to cover the numbers of children, or staff may need to leave earlier to ensure that they can get home safely. We are bound by Ofsted to have the right ratio of staff to children to be open. Before you set out in the mornings, please check...

Important Notices


Due to the weather conditions we are having to stay closed  on FRIDAY 2nd MARCH 

We have been advised to stay closed due to the dangerous conditions on the roads. The safety of our staff and families travelling to the setting is very important. 

We know that this causes disruption for many but we hope that you understand that this is a decision we have to make for the safety of everyone. Please see our severe weather information in our news section. 

We look forward to seeing you all next week.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please enjoy the snow with your families and share your captured moments with us on Tapestry or via email.
