It’s SO hard trying to make a choice about which nursery to choose if you or when you need one; i think for such important issues such as this personal recommendations are really important along with getting down to the nursery itself and checking them out. I can personally recommend Southmead Saplings nursery; it’s part of the Southmead hospital nursery and is open to employees of the North Bristol Trust and also private customers too.
As you go into Southmead hospital from the entrance where A & E use to be it’s on the right hand side in the big nurses block, it has parking right out side which is essential really so there are no issues of parking and having to cart your children and their bags miles. The staff are so friendly, when i worked in the Biochemistry lab Amelia my 1st daughter was there for 3 1/2 years (not in one stint ha ha i did pick her up in between!) , she did 2 days per week and she loved it, and i am not joking or sugar coating it when i say that. I regard the ladies there who looked after her for that time friends, they have always looked after my children very well and i totally trust them 100%.
They are open 5 days per week, 8am – 6pm (although if you need a 7am start they can do this but you have to pay the extra hour)
Their age range is 3 months to 5 years
Employees to NBT and also non-employees can have places. They have different day rates depending upon NBT employee or not.
Ms Helen Whitehead is manager.
