Where children have fun, learning

Downend Road - Downend

Mama Bear’s Pre-School in Downend is designed to be a stimulating place of discovery offering excellent childcare for rising threes and above.

Housed in a converted Victorian vicarage, the nursery is surrounded by an extensive mature walled-garden with an all-weather playground to the rear. It is important to us that our children have the opportunity to play outdoors as much as possible and garden has plenty of toys to spark children’s imagination and curiosity.

Inside the Pre-school, the rooms are large and airy. Our team are experienced and the Pre-school teacher designs activities to support each child’s development and progression helping them prepare for the transition to primary school.

The nursery is easy to find, located on the corner of Downend Road and Shrubbery Road, and is on the bus routes for numbers 48 and 49. We are perfectly located for parents in the Downend, Fishponds, Mangotsfield, Emersons Green and Staple Hill areas. There is plenty of parking outside the nursery making dropping off and picking up very convenient.

The Downend Pre-school partners our sister setting round the corner in Coronation Road which operates as a dedicated Baby and Toddler Unit.

Meet our Nursery manager: Nicola

"We are a 52-place converted Victorian vicarage with spacious outdoor provision which includes grass, decking and patio areas. We are a designated Pre-school, with our Baby and Toddler unit on a separate site. We provide a happy, caring, warm and welcoming environment with well qualified and experienced staff. All staff plan a stimulating range of activities and meet all children’s learning and developmental needs, which enables children to be confident, independent learners and ready for their next transition to school."
