Developed with passion and care, we hope The Nursery will provide families from Portishead and the surrounding areas with a service they will be delighted to have on their doorstep.

“Hi I am Jackie Hardie, the owner and manager of childcare provider called “The Nursery”. The Nursery is the result of over 20 years experience in Early Years Education. For the past 13 years I have been running an Early years Consultancy Business, Stepping Stones Training that has helped Early Years childcare settings nationally and internationally achieve outstanding results. This work has taken me all around the world advising some of the most prestigious international schools. This experience combined with years of running a busy Reception class means that I have extremely high standards and expect only the highest quality of care and education to be represented in my nursery. This vision is supported by my outstanding nursery team. The Nursery will always endeavour to exceed expectations:

  • We have bespoke outdoor play equipment in a beautiful landscaped area
  • We offer forest and beach school
  • We try to accommodate flexible hours
  • We are competitively priced
  • Early reading & Phonics Scheme
  • Ballet lessons
  • Swimming lessons

We hope you will agree that when it comes to finding the best childcare nursery for your family, The Nursery is what you’ve been looking for. I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to my highly qualified and specially selected team.”


We have three different childcare learning environments at the nursery.
