About Us

Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around themo. Development is not an automatic process, however. It depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments – (EYFS 2012)

Bacton Under Fives was formed in 1979, starting as a Mother and Toddler Group and developing over the years into the daycare setting that we are proud of today.  In April 2010 we moved into our present purpose-built Playcentre.

Bacton Under Fives offers a complete childcare package for families in our community.

In January 2016 we launched our new Explorers groups. They are aimed at children aged 4 and under, their parents and carers. The groups runs every  Friday during term-time.    Click here for dates and more information.
