Discover a Nurturing Haven for Early Learning at Torquay Day Nursery

Welcome to our Torquay Day Nursery, a delightful, purpose-built facility located on the serene grounds of St Margaret’s Academy in Torquay. Known for its intimate setting, this nursery offers a warm, familial atmosphere that helps even the smallest children quickly feel at home.

A Cosy, Inviting Childcare Experience

Our nursery, though among our more petite locations, is a beacon of excellence and comfort in childcare. It’s designed with two specialised rooms that cater to different developmental stages: the Under 2’s Room for our youngest attendees and the Over 2’s Room for toddlers. Each space is filled with vibrant, age-appropriate toys and creative resources that spark imagination and encourage creative exploration.

Dynamic Learning and Play Spaces

The heart of our nursery is its dynamic outdoor play area, which is more than just a space for physical activity—it’s a launchpad for imagination and discovery. Here, children engage with the natural world, cultivating their curiosity and physical skills through structured and free play. Our staff are experts at crafting engaging activities that not only entertain but also educate, ensuring that outdoor play is an integral part of your child’s developmental journey.

Dedicated to Nurturing Each Child

At Mama Bear's Torquay Day Nursery, our staff are more than caregivers; they are passionate educators and nurturing presences committed to the growth and well-being of every child. We take pride in our ability to provide personalised attention, getting to know each child and their family to create a tailored nursery experience that supports individual learning and development. This personal approach helps each child feel seen, valued and understood.

Commitment to Excellence

Our dedication to providing top-quality childcare is reflected in our Ofsted rating, where we have been graded as good across all areas. We continually strive to enhance our services and exceed expectations, ensuring that our nursery is a place where children can thrive and parents can have peace of mind.

Open All Year for Family Flexibility

Understanding the needs of modern families, our nursery remains open throughout the year, closing only for bank holidays and Christmas week. This schedule is designed to provide maximum support and flexibility to families, making it easier to manage childcare around busy lifestyles.
