Welcome to Little Leaders Childcare

We have three day nurseries in Ipswich, Framlingham and Melton. Our settings offer an exciting natural environment, for children to learn and explore.


About Us

We have three settings in Ipswich, Framlingham and Melton.  Our settings offer an exciting natural environment, for children to learn and explore.

We use the Curiosity Approach to help the children use their imagination, curious minds and magical thoughts to develop and grow. We have a calm, tranquil approach to learning through loose parts and natural resources, which helps the children to think creatively and critically. We have child led planning which allows the children to follow their own path and create a magical environment to learn in. 

The curiosity approach

We are open all year round for 51 weeks of the year, for children 12 weeks – 5yrs. Our opening times are Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm.

We will be offering 15hrs funding for children from 9+ months in September 24 and 2yr olds from April 24, alongside our offering of 15hr or 30hrs for 3& 4 yr olds. 

We also offer the childcare voucher schemes or tax free childcare.

Our childcare company has been running for 12 years and as the Directors we have over 20 years experience of Early Years education. 

Laura holds a Level 5 in Leadership and Management in Children and Young People’s services, along with Level 4 CCLD and SENCo, which provides the company with a good knowledge and background of Early Years. Lee has the knowledge in HR and is involved in the administration within the company. 

We take great pride in the business to provide great childcare now and in the future, making sure every child’s individual needs are paramount to us and the staff. The settings environment is calm, tranquil and inviting, hoping to help the children settle and enjoy their learning journey with Little Leaders. 

We have passed our Curiosity accreditation, on a  scheme called ‘The Curiosity Approach’. It’s helping the children learn in a natural environment with resources that inspire curiosity, awe and wonder.
