From Our Website
We are a family run childcare organisation based in the South West with day nurseries in Bristol, Yeovil, Taunton, Paignton, Torquay and Plymouth. Our first day nursery opened in Brislington, Bristol, in 2004 and our nursery group has grown on our reputation of outstanding and affordable childcare available to all families. We're passionate about providing babies, toddlers and preschool children with the best start in their early education and work diligently to ensure that this results in safe and happy children in our care.
We want to support all of our families as much as we can and one of the ways we do this is through extended opening hours. Children about to start nursery are recommended to make at least two familiarisation visits with a parent/carer to help them settle in. On their first 'proper' day with us they will be welcomed by their Key Person and re-introduced to the other children. Whilst we try not to encourage children to bring their own toys from home with them, sometimes a teddy or blanket can be a comfort during the first few days.
At Mama Bear's we take our responsibility as an employer seriously. We are proud to create an exciting working environment that not only provides outstanding outcomes for the children we care for but also our employees. We understand that all of our employees have goals they want to fulfil, whether it is career progression, stable employment or purely being part of a successful team. In 2017, 70% of our senior vacancies were filled by internal promotions and we offer constant training opportunities.
All welfare and educational activities throughout the nursery follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, which is the statutory governing document for childcare providers. We are regularly inspected to ensure we meet (or indeed exceed) the requirements of the EYFS by Ofsted, the Local Education Authority and the Health Authorities. You are welcome to view any of our inspection reports. All our nurseries support free-flow play and help to develop children's confidence by encouraging them to choose the activities they want to engage in.
