Plymouth- Fortview, Crownhill
Fort View is our smallest nursery but set in one of our largest gardens. Children benefit from a cosy home from home environment yet have the opportunity to explore and benefit from an extensive outdoor environment. Set in an oasis of peaceful countryside within the city, the nursery is well placed to serve families living or working nearby. Find us to the right of the historic Napoleonic fort at the top of Crownhill Fort Road.
The nursery and pre-school was recently awarded an Outstanding grade by Ofsted in October 2017. The inspector was particularly impressed with the setting’s highly reflective management style which involves staff, parents and the children themselves helping to evaluate and make improvements. Of note, is the nursery’s ‘Children’s Council’ scheme which allows children to air views about favourite activities and what they enjoy learning.
Meet our Nursery Manager: Kerry
I have been working in childcare for 18 years, starting with Mama Bear’s back in May 2014 after having my youngest child. I started working as a Level 3 and then worked my way up to cover as an acting Deputy Manager and then Manager for maternity cover. Towards the end of the cover an opportunity became available to manage one of Mama Bear’s smaller nurseries at Crownhill Fort, I decided to apply for the role and haven’t looked back. I absolutely love working in childcare as no two days are the same.
