Speedwell - Whiteway Road
Mama Bear’s in Speedwell comprises a Pre-school for 2, 3 and 4 year olds in Whiteway Road plus a dedicated Baby Unit (for under 2’s) two doors down on the corner of Kingsmead Road.
Both settings offer a stimulating, safe and welcoming environment with resources dedicated to their age group. Enjoying and achieving is the focus throughout the day.
Children develop at different rates and the facilities of the Baby Room recognises this, with separate indoor and outdoor areas, allowing younger children to freely explore using their developing senses, as well as providing suitable stimulation for those who need to be more physically challenged.
Our Bouncy Room (two year olds) is light and vibrant with a wide range of resources to support challenges in preparation for Pre-School while ensuring that the children still enjoy the simple sense of play.
In the Pre-School Room (three to fives) children are prepared for ‘big school’ while still being able to enjoy exploring their surroundings at their own pace. A focus on social development and learning through discovery prevails.
We’re particularly proud of our amazing Pre-school garden in which children explore the outside environment and develop gross motor skills. Learning and physical development go hand in hand.

Meet our Nursery Manager: Nicola
Hello I'm Nicola. Ever since I left school I knew I wanted a career in childcare. I studied a childcare course at college then have worked in day nurseries ever since. I have worked myself up the career ladder to where I am today as Nursery Manager. I have been with Mama Bear's for 13 years and I am still passionate about achieving the best outcomes for all children. I enjoy being hands on in the rooms, supporting staff in providing a fun, nurturing and stimulating environment for children to learn and develop. I look forward to meeting you.
