High-quality, welcoming nursery near Paignton stations. Age-specific rooms, sensory play, and safe outdoor areas for your child's growth

Welcome to Mama Bear's Day Nursery and Pre-school, nestled in the vibrant heart of Paignton on Midvale Road. Our facility is perfectly positioned within walking distance of local transportation hubs, schools, and shops, making it a convenient choice for families residing in the Torbay area. Offering exceptional childcare services for little ones aged three months to five years, Mama Bear’s is more than just a nursery; it’s a cornerstone of community and early childhood excellence.

A Nurturing, Homely Environment

Our nursery occupies a spacious semi-detached property spread over three floors, each thoughtfully designed to provide a nurturing, homely atmosphere that helps children feel secure and settled from their very first day. With 57 places available, we ensure a warm, welcoming environment where every child receives the attention and care they deserve.

Tailored Learning Spaces

At Mama Bear’s, we understand that each age group has unique needs. Our facility features three specialised rooms:

  • The Sensory Room: A wonderland of exploration tailored for all ages, fostering cognitive development and sensory skills through interactive play.
  • The Bouncy Room (2-3 year olds): Located on the ground floor, this room offers direct access to the front garden, allowing toddlers to transition smoothly between indoor learning and outdoor play.
  • The Baby Room (under 2s): Situated on the top floor with a dedicated sleeping area, it provides a quiet, soothing environment tailored to the needs of our youngest members.

Dynamic Outdoor Play

Children at Mama Bear’s benefit from two secure outdoor play areas. The front garden is an extension of our Bouncy Room, perfect for toddlers to enjoy safe, supervised play amidst natural settings. The rear garden, accessible from the Preschool area, is a larger space equipped with a variety of play equipment that encourages physical activity and interaction with the environment. These areas are designed not only for fun but also to enhance physical coordination, health, and well-being.

Community and Care

Recognised for our outstanding quality of care, we welcome families from across the local community, remaining open all year round—excluding only bank holidays and Christmas Week. Each space in our nursery, from the interactive sensory room to the free-flowing gardens, is crafted to support the development of well-rounded, happy children who are ready for the transition to school and beyond.

Meet our Nursery Manager: Amy

Hi I'm Amy and I'm thrilled to be the new Nursery Manager here at Mama Bears Midvale Road. My journey with Mama Bears started back in 2017 when I joined as an Apprentice at our Long Road site. After qualifying in 2019, I moved up to become a Room Leader in 2020 and then took on the role of Deputy Manager. Along the way, I've also supported other nursery sites in Torbay, which has really expanded my knowledge and experience in early years education. I'm incredibly passionate about creating a stimulating and educational environment for our children. I believe that every child deserves the best start in life, and I'm committed to working alongside our amazing staff team to maintain standards here at Midvale Road. Outside of work, you might catch me at a Zumba class—I like staying active and trying new things! I can't wait to bring my energy and enthusiasm to Mama Bears Midvale Road and help our children learn, grow, and have fun every day.
