Where children have fun, learning

Welcome to Mama Bear's Day Nursery

We are an established childcare organisation based in the South West with day nurseries in Bristol, Yeovil, Taunton, Paignton, Torquay, Plymouth and Bridgwater.

Our first day nursery opened in Brislington, Bristol, in 2004 and our nursery group has grown on our reputation of outstanding and affordable childcare available to all families. We're passionate about providing babies, toddlers and preschool children with the best start in their early education and work diligently to ensure that this results in safe and happy children in our care.

Below you'll find an example video of a typical virtual tour in one of our settings.
