About Us

Nursery care and preschool education in Tiptree, Colchester

If you're a busy working parent we understand the stresses of knowing that your children are in safe hands.

ABC Day Nursery are committed to providing excellent childcare in a friendly, welcoming and secure surrounding. 

With indoor and outdoor play facilities we plan activities and experiences under the Early Years Foundation Stage framework for learning. 

It is important that the little people in your life have a healthy lifestyle; with this in mind we arrange regular outdoor activities including walks to the park and the local library. We have our very own chef who prepares fresh meals daily ensuring your children have their five a day.

All children who attend the nursery are assigned their own key worker who will work closely with you, keeping you up to date with your child's development. Regular parents' evenings are also held in order for you to ask any questions or queries you may have and to see a sample of your child's work. 

ABC Day Nursery operates 51 weeks of the year closing between Christmas and New Year.
