The Nursery creates
outstanding memorable childhoods.

We believe all children deserve to be happy and healthy, no matter what is going on in the outside world and our aim is to help you raise happy, healthy, confident, sociable, curious young people.

You recently took Joshua to the beach on the mini bus with his friends. I felt like I was there with him on the trip as from the moment handover was complete and we drove home he didn’t stop talking and telling me all about his day. It was the same when we got home, he had to tell Mummy and Ava all about his great day and this continued up to bedtime, it filled him up and we both said it was lovely to see him lost in his imagination. The level of detail he was able to relay was great…


We’ve since taken a trip to the same beach as a family where Joshua led us, again his memories that he said “came down from his head” helped us get to the same part of the beach that you visited. Thank you.”

At The Nursery and The Preschool in Portishead we create memorable childhoods for children and their parents. We are committed to offering the very best childcare for your child and we understand this involves the whole family, offering the best of both worlds: freedom and flexibility for you, without missing the all-important milestones.

Our nursery is rated outstanding by OFSTED, as are many other nurseries, however our aim is to always be outstanding in everything we do, not just make sure we are outstanding for an inspection (2016 and 2022). To ensure our standards and delivery are always of the highest standard we engage an external inspector to monitor standards on a monthly basis.

The safety of the children we care for has always been our number one priority and it always will be, however right alongside that we place great importance on their happiness and development. We work hard to create an environment that children want to spend time in, so parents can feel they are leaving their children in their second home.

We work with parents to help children be the best they can be, guiding them through different areas of learning and emotional development through a wide and varied range of activities.

Our children enjoy so many different experiences both in-house and on trips into the local community, exploring their way through the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and beyond.

While there’s never a dull moment and there is plenty of excitement at The Nursery and The Preschool, there is also a calm, nurturing, environment always ready to help children reflect on what they have learned and who they are.

We believe what we offer is pretty unique and we hope you enjoy exploring this website to find out more or please just get in touch, it’s good to talk!

Other nurseries just don’t compare. We moved from one in Bristol and the difference is amazing. Our daughter Daisy loves going to ‘duck school’ and has the most magical time there. We couldn’t be happier.”
