Mama Bear’s takes over at The Covey Nursery

The Covey Nursery at Baileys Court, Bradley Stoke.

The Bristol-based nursery group which acquired the former Butterflies Day Nursery site on Great Park Road last year has taken on another nursery in the area, creating sustainable childcare places and more employment opportunities for the Bradley Stoke community.

Mama Bear’s Day Nursery group took over the running of The Covey Nursery in Baileys Court from Monday 19th January, following the retirement of the previous owners.

Interest in both nurseries is already high and Mama Bear’s says it is looking for more staff to add to the teams already in place.

Mama Bear’s owner Bev Driffield said:

“We are delighted to have another nursery in Bradley Stoke and we look forward to offering even more quality childcare to local families. Our offer of free registration until June has attracted lots of new families, so we are looking to expand the teams we have in place. Opportunities are available for Level-3 qualified childcare practitioners and apprentices.”

“We always aim to create a home-from-home environment and we put a massive focus on the quality of care we provide, as well as training for our staff, so it’s a great opportunity for anyone in the industry or those looking to get into the industry.”

Plans are in place for redevelopment at both Bradley Stoke nurseries in early 2015.

Bev continued:

“We really believe children thrive while with us and we strive to prepare them for the next big step up to primary school. If you’d like to come and take a look around our nurseries and meet with the team, we’d love to have you or if you think you could join our friendly, professional team, please get in touch.”

“The idea for Mama Bear’s Day Nursery initially started in our living room in Bradley Stoke so it feels like we have come back home.”

Mama Bear’s Day Nursery is a family-run business founded in 2002 with its offices in Hanham, Bristol. The Day Nurseries are aimed at providing children with their first vital level of education to give them a head-start when they start at primary school.
