Where children have fun, learning


Our newest Mama Bear's Day Nursery and Pre-school opened in Totterdown at the beginning of 2014. This nursery is located in The Bush on Wells Road and provides high-quality childcare for children aged three months to five years.

The interior of the building has been divided into separate rooms where babies, toddlers and pre-school children can spend the day having fun and learning. A spacious outdoor area gives children the opportunity to play, run around, race in our toy cars and explore their surroundings.

This new setting has been fully designed and equipped with children in mind. There are plenty of toys to support every child’s development and spark their imagination – from the role play corner to messy play. Our first children have quickly settled in and are really enjoying making new discoveries each day.

Based in between the Wells Road and Bath Road in Totterdown, we are located perfectly to suit families who live in Totterdown, Hengrove, Knowle, Windmill Hill, Bedminster and even parents who commute from Bath, Keynsham and beyond. The nursery is within walking distance of Temple Meads, which is great for parents who need to commute to work by train. Many of our families who work in the city centre are also able to walk in from the nursery.

Meet our Nursery Manager: Sam

"Our nursery is the baby of the Mama Bear's Family! We can offer a newly-created safe, caring and vibrant environment for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We have well qualified staff from a range of different backgrounds offering different skills to help children maximise their potential, whilst ensuring all their individual needs are met. We place a strong emphasis on music as a key development tool for children of all ages and are involved with the Bristol Music Project. We aim to send all our children out as confident individuals and do this by encouraging independence at all stages of development, ensuring good developmental progress at all levels."
