MAMA Bear’s Day Nursery in Soundwell has improved its Ofsted rating to Good, which means it can now offer free places for eligible two-year-olds.
The latest inspection report praises nursery staff for confidently assessing children’s abilities, needs, interests and future learning using information from regular observations of children as they play.
Emma Plucknett, manager of the nursery inPembroke Road, said: “We are delighted to have achieved a Good Ofsted rating in our latest inspection. We have worked really hard to develop the nursery over the past year both in terms of the setting itself and in our teaching practises. For example we have used extra funding to help children make better progress in their mathematical development.
“I was really pleased to see that the inspector noted the children as motivated and enjoying their time at nursery and that the leadership and management are good. We are committed to finding the very best childcare practitioners so to be named ‘highly motivated, caring and enthusiastic’ is great.
“At Mama Bear’s we pride ourselves on offering outstanding care and tailoring that care to each individual child’s needs. It is so lovely to see each child develop during their time with us before they go off to school.
“We currently have spaces in our Baby Room and we’d love new families to join us as a result of our new rating.”  
The nursery, which is a purpose-built setting with an impressive custom garden, is divided into three age groups – a Baby Room for under twos, a Bouncy Room for two to three year olds and a Pre-school for three to five year olds. Eligible children  would be entitled to 12 hours of free childcare per week.
Mama Bear’s Day Nursery is a Bristol-based family-run childcare organisation, which was established in 2002 with the aim of making high-quality, affordable childcare available to families living, working or studying in the South West.
