Where children have fun, learning

Plymouth - Pennycross

Recently awarded OUTSTANDING by Ofsted. Inspectors commented, "Children flourish in this highly supportive and nurturing nursery".

Welcome to our Plymouth Day Nursery, a premier childcare haven designed for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers to ignite their curiosity and embark on their early learning adventures. Here at our Plymouth (Pennycross) location, we deeply understand the developmental needs of children and are dedicated to nurturing their growth through the critical stages of early education.

A World of Discovery in Every Room

Our facility boasts five expansive, age-specific rooms, each meticulously maintained and thoughtfully equipped with resources that stimulate young minds and foster a vibrant learning environment. From tactile toys that develop motor skills to interactive learning tools that spark creativity, every element is selected to enhance the educational journey of our young learners.

Encouraging Outdoor Exploration

Access to our large, secure garden is seamless from each classroom, encouraging children to blend indoor learning experiences with outdoor play. This natural extension of our classroom space allows children to thrive in an open environment where they can run freely, engage with nature, climb on safe play apparatus, and enjoy all-weather activities under our protective undercover area. We believe that a love of the outdoors cultivates not only physical health but also mental well-being and a lifelong appreciation for the environment.

Commitment to Health and Happiness

At this day nursery, the happiness and health of every child are paramount. Our onsite kitchens are purpose-built to prepare fresh, nutritious meals that cater to the dietary needs and preferences of all children, ensuring they receive the balanced nutrition they need to play, learn, and grow. 

A Team That Cares Deeply

Supporting our wonderful children is our highly skilled staff team, whose dedication to childcare excellence is unmatched. Each team member participates in ongoing professional development, constantly advancing their knowledge and skills to meet the highest standards of childcare. This commitment to professional growth ensures that every child in our care benefits from the most current and effective educational practices.

Open All Year for Your Family

Understanding the needs of modern families, our nursery operates all year round, closing only for bank holidays and Christmas week. We strive to offer flexible childcare solutions that accommodate the diverse schedules of our families, making quality early education accessible to all.

At Mama Bear's Pennycross Plymouth Day Nursery, we don't just watch your children grow—we actively participate in shaping their futures by providing a safe, enriching, and loving environment. Join us and experience a place where children laugh, learn, and grow into happy, healthy young individuals. Our doors are always open for families seeking an exceptional early childhood education experience.
