Seashore Day Nursery, Lowestoft

We are conveniently located close to the seafront and town centre.

Seashore Day Nursery is based in a custom designed building which opened in July 2003. The building is on two levels and is designed to be completely accessible to everyone, having sloped entrances and a lift to the upper floor. Our nurturing ‘home from home’ environment is carefully designed to encourage children to learn independently in a safe, secure environment that promotes equality and values diversity. We have an experienced skilled manager and staff team. We provide all meals and promote healthy eating. Our cook prepares a healthy home cooked lunch for the children using fresh ingredients.

We provide a range of fun activities, resources, and experiences to meet children’s individual needs and interests. Children have the opportunity to explore our outdoor area all year round and take part in physical activity, being adventurous in safety.
