Welcome to Bradley Bar Private Day Nursery

Childcare You Can Trust

Choosing the right Nursery for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Here at Bradley Bar we have over 25 years experience, specialising in childcare from 0 to 5 year olds.  Our mission is a simple one, we believe ‘the value of a child’s work is not the finished product but in the journey of discovery and experience the child takes to get there.’

We aim to provide both an educationally stimulating and nurturing environment through our colourful and interactive play areas and through our qualified team of staff.

We believe children should be valued and cared for as individuals, whilst being supported and encouraged to develop their potential before they begin their school career.

We believe nurturing a close relationship with parents is the best approach to delivering quality childcare and to ensure the needs of both parents and children are met. Most important of all, we want you and your child to enjoy and cherish your time at Bradley Bar.

What sets us apart?

We have an enthusiastic team of qualified staff offering a wealth of experience to support your child with their learning and development in these very important early years.

All staff are fully qualified, and many have additional qualifications ranging from level 4 in Child Care Learning and Development to the Early Years Foundation Degree.

Holly Guite is the setting’s Early Years Teacher, it is her role to support and guide the staff team to ensure the quality and relevance of play and teaching in the setting and make certain that the nursery meets the requirements of the early years foundation stage (EYFS).

To this end, we operate a key person system, this means that each member of staff has responsibility for an identified group of children.  The system enables staff to document the progress of the individual child and keep the necessary records.  Parents are encouraged to view their own child’s file at any time.

We place a high value on partnership with parents and believe that children benefit most from an early years education and care when parents and settings work closely together.

Our aim therefore is to support our parents as the child’s first and most important educator by involving you in your child’s education and in the full life of the setting.

Don't just take our word for it...
