Paignton - Midvale Road
Mama Bear’s Day Nursery and Pre-school on Midvale Road, Paignton, is situated in a large semi-detached property in the town centre of the town, within walking distance of Paignton train and coach stations, schools, shops and other local amenities. We offer outstanding childcare for children aged three months to five years.
Children are cared for in three well-resourced rooms which cater for the specific needs of each age-group. Based over three floors, the nursery has a very homely feel helping children to settle in quickly. We have also created a sensory room that all of our children love exploring.
The secure outdoor play areas at both the front and rear offer children the opportunity to discover the outside in a safe and protected setting. Both gardens were designed with children in mind and there is a great balance of natural environment and play equipment.
We are very proud that our nursery has recently been awarded an ‘outstanding in all areas’ grade by Ofsted. This recognition of the quality of care at our nursery, that is available to all families in the Torbay area, was important and we are focused on improving on this even further.
This setting was formerly the Nippers Childcare Centre and became part of Mama Bear’s on 1st November 2012. The nursery is open all year round (except bank holidays and Christmas Week) and welcomes all families from the local community.

"We offer a friendly, comfortable and safe environment, which children find stimulating and challenging. Enjoyment and fun is linked with discovery and learning. Our key person system ensures that each child’s needs, stage of development and their current interests are understood and met to ensure that children make good progress from their starting points towards the early learning goals. We want every child who attends our nursery to be equipped with the skills to become a confident, social independent learner when they make their next transition onto school."
