A new nursery has opened its doors in Haverhill today.
The Colourbox Montessori Nursery at Haverhill Research Park welcomed its first children on Monday, September 7.
The nursery will provide full-time and part-time care and education for children from three months to five years of age and has recently hosted a successful visit from OFSTED inspectors.
The nursery has an outdoor play area and drop-off zone with parking for 16 cars.
Susie Norman, the owner of Colourbox, said: “The nursery is absolutely beautiful and because Nic Rumsey and his team at Jaynic involved us in the design of the nursery right from the start, the layout is just how we wanted it to be.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to see the reactions of the children on their settling in visits.”
Jaynic, the developer of Haverhill Research Park, awarded a construction contract to local builder KT Construction, and on- site work started in March 2015.
Jaynic director Nic Rumsey said: “We are pleased that local contractor KT Construction has completed the project on schedule and delighted that it meets Colourbox’s vision for the school.
“This is another vital step towards providing Haverhill with a mixed use employment zone that is already providing homes, a restaurant and now nursery care.
“It is another major foundation stone towards making Haverhill Research Park a very sustainable working location.
“Parents will be able to drop their children off before coming to work at the Park and pick them up on the way home.”
The single-storey building, designed by Frank Shaw Architects, has been built on the west side of the main estate road, Three Counties Way, close to the entrance to the park.
