A Fishponds nursery is opening its doors to local families for a special summer celebration on Saturday 16 August.

The Mama Bear's Day Nursery and Pre-School on Thicket Avenue will be open from 10am-12pm for parents to explore and managers are planning lots of summer-themed activities to keep children occupied.

The summer family fun day, not only aims to allow families in the area to take a look around but will also offer an opportunity for parents to find out more about free childcare available for two, three and four-year-olds.

The setting has capacity for 80 children from three months to five years, with dedicated rooms and facilities for each age group as well as a purpose-built garden.

Owner of Mama Bear's Bev Driffield, who has 27 years of childcare and early education experience, said: "We're thoroughly looking forward to our summer celebration at our Fishponds nursery and hope to see lots of our lovely families coming along as well as any parents in the area who are considering childcare for their children.

"We have found that many parents don't know the childcare provisions available to them, which is why we are holding open days at our various nurseries for families to find out more. Funding is available for some two, and all three to four-year-olds to receive free nursery places but the scheme isn't being used to its full advantage.

"We're keen for local families to meet our nursery practitioners who provide the care and education to our children on a day-to-day basis. We are so passionate about what we do and work very hard to ensure children in our care are safe, happy and confident individuals.

"I am very aware that our role is to support the needs of the family as a whole, especially those where both parents work. As such, we have created working family-friendly policies, including longer opening hours, designed to make life easier for busy mums and dads. These are just some of the things we can talk about at the open day."

Mama Bear's has gained a reputation in the South West for offering the highest quality, affordable care and has been awarded an Outstanding grade by OFSTED every year since 2009.

A family run childcare organisation, Mama Bear's was established in 2002 and now includes 19 nursery settings in Bristol, Somerset and Devon.

The drop-in family fun day will take place on Saturday 16 August from 10am-12pm.
