Bristol Children’s Playhouse: a nurturing pre-school & nursery in Eastville

Are you currently looking for a nursery or pre-school setting for your little one?

There are currently spaces available for 2 to 4 year olds at Bristol Children’s Playhouse, a charity, nursery and pre-school which is run by parents for parents in term-time.

Bristol Children’s Playhouse is also offering 30 hours childcare for qualifying children aged 3 years+ (parents need to earn more than the equivalent of 16 hours at the national living wage or minimum wage per week).

Providing a home-from-home, nurturing setting in Eastville, Bristol Children’s Playhouse boasts two fantastic outdoor learning environments including a private woodland area.

Its ethos is to offer a supportive and personal approach, providing a community of care and education for children and their families.

Whilst mandated ratios are 1-8, there is 1 adult to every 6 children in the pre-school which reflects the setting’s belief in the importance of quality interactions to optimise children’s development.

The latest Ofsted Report from May this year can be viewed on the Bristol Childen’s Playhouse website:

An excerpt from the report:

• Managers and staff provide a wide range of activities and children are eager and confident to explore. Children develop the skills they need for future learning. They make good progress from their initial starting points.
• Managers and staff teach children to be considerate and to take responsibility for their actions. Children behave well. They know how to share and are tolerant, respectful and kind to each other.
• Partnerships with parents are good. Managers keep parents well-informed about children’s successes and how to extend their learning at home. Parents comment that they value the support that they and their families receive.

As well as the spaces currently available, Bristol Children’s Playhouse also has intakes throughout the year.
