Located in a beautiful rural setting, our bright and spacious baby, toddler and preschool rooms are all located on one level. Each room has easy freeflow access to a lovely outdoor space.

We are proud to have been awarded the Bristol Standard Quality and Improvement award for the care of children from Birth to 5 years.

A Bright Beginning for Your Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start through our wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture your little one's wellbeing and develop their skills.

Learning for All Ages

Our baby room includes a separate sleep room so your little one can recharge in a quiet and comfortable area after enjoying daily activities such as Boogie Mites and Makaton signing sessions.

Toddlers love exploring our safe and stimulating toddler room which benefits from freeflow access to an age appropriate garden including mud kitchen, pirate ship and a variety of bikes and scooters.

Your preschooler can explore even more learning opportunities such as yoga, and Forest School sessions, helping them to learn about their world.

Preparing for School

  • Your Growing reader, writer, mathematician and artist will benefit from more of our Growing Enhancements such as our Growing Gardeners area, through our Ready for School Programme.
  • They will continue to enjoy Boogie Mites which provides exciting opportunities to learn about the world through music and song.
  • Our qualified preschool teacher is there to support your little one as their knowledge and confidence grows, and will help them to prepare important life skills so that they are ready physically and emotionally, for the transition to school.

Commuter Convenience

We are situated close to the main commuter routes into the city centre via the A369, within the suburb of Bower Ashton.

There is a local Park and Ride just 5 minutes from the nursery and the city centre is a short drive away.

Our onsite car park eases the daily drop-off and pick up process.

Book Your Personal Tour

We look forward to meeting you and your little one for a personal tour and we invite any questions you may have.
