Where children have fun, learning


Mama Bear’s Day Nursery and Pre-school in Brislington is a vibrant setting with extensive gardens overlooking South Bristol. We care for children from 3 months old until they start primary school. Based at the top of Allison Road, just off Broomhill Road, we‘re ideally located for parents based in Brislington as well as those to the east of the City (e.g. Keynsham, Saltford, Bath) who travel down the A4 to work in Bristol.

“Staff provide enticing learning environments inside and outside to support children's choices. Staff work closely with parents, updating information regularly to ensure they meet children's care needs successfully."

Our children benefit from light, well laid out rooms with extensive outdoor facilities. Children love the gardens and spend as much time as possible outdoors throughout the year. Our youngest children make the most of the baby unit, which is full of age-appropriate toys designed to stimulate and support their development. The comprehensive pre-school facilities, from which our rising fives go on to the Reception classes of local schools as confident learners, offer plenty of opportunities for exploration and discovery.

We are also not far from the Brislington Park & Ride and the local bus route is the No.1 / 1A (which goes to Cribbs Causeway via Temple Meads, the Centre, Westbury and Henbury).
