About The Saplings
The Saplings is situated in Martlesham Heath, Ipswich. Formerly St Michael's Pre-School registered as a playgroup in 1993, The Saplings moved into our own spacious premises in July 2011. This has enabled us to offer a range of children's clubs alongside our Pre-School Play Sessions: Breakfast Club, After School Club and Holiday Club. We are open Monday to Friday: 7.30 - 6pm.
The Saplings has a team of experienced and enthusiastic staff led by our manager, Rachel Lockwood.
The Saplings welcomes fathers, mothers, other relations and carers including child-minders and nannies; people from all cultural, ethnic, religious and social groups and people of all abilities.
As we are a registered charity, we do rely on donations and fundraising. The Saplings also has a dedicated voluntary committee of Parents and a Board of Trustees who provide support to the staff, provide feedback and co-ordinate fundraising.
We are regularly inspected by Ofsted to assess the quality of the Pre-School's provision and we currently have a Good Ofsted Rating. A copy of our latest report is available on the Ofsted website
Our Policies and a copy of The Saplings Prospectus are available to view in the Key Information section of our website.
