"It’s so comforting to know that Eve is at a place she loves and with people I trust.”

Situated just off the A12 on the edge of Martlesham Heath Business Park,
the nursery is ideally located for parents who work at Adastral Park, in Martlesham Heath or pass by on the way to work.

The nursery has been converted from a historic building, believed to be part of the officers’ mess on the WW2 airfield which occupied the area. Today it provides a bright and homely environment for babies, toddlers and pre- schoolers, with easy access to the well laid out play gardens at the rear.

Ofsted Rhymes Nursery Martlesham achieved a good rating at the latest Ofsted inspection. The full report can be viewed here or on the Ofsted website.


The Rhymes Team

Martlesham nursery is led by our nursery manager, Gina Smith.

Working with Gina is a team picked for their expertise and experience. All our nursery nurses have a minimum level 3 childcare qualification, as well as food safety, paediatric first-aid and safeguarding qualifications. Rhymes is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we make sure all staff at Martlesham share this commitment. All staff and volunteers are subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Baby, toddler and pre-school rooms each have a room leader and your child will have a key-person who has a special responsibility for their care, development and wellbeing. Your key-person is there for a chat at the beginning or end of each day and there is an opportunity each term for you to book a key chat session, giving more time to discuss progress and future learning experiences.

What Parents Say

“Thank you so much for looking after and teaching and playing with Eve. She has loved her time with you. It’s so comforting to know that she is at a place she loves and with people I trust.”

“Having our child attend a nursery where the staff are understanding, supportive, encouraging and approachable has made us hugely relaxed and we feel very lucky to have found you.”

“I know how much Bea loves everyone at Rhymes and how much more content it’s made us as parents having her attend somewhere which has encouraged her, inspired her and somewhere she’s mixed with lots of lovely children.”

Open to Meet Your Needs

We are open Monday to Friday throughout the year (excluding bank holidays and Christmas to New Year) from 7.30am to 6.00pm. We are as flexible as possible to look after your child to match your requirements for childcare. Please contact to find out availability and to book a visit to take a look round.


Making Sure of the Best Start

We offer 4 introductory sessions free of charge to new admissions at the nurseries. Parents are invited to stay, to get to know the staff and to satisfy themselves their child is settling in happily. Toward the end of the free sessions you may feel confident enough to slip out for a short while. Doing this a few times will overcome the common fear that Mummy or Daddy is not coming back.
