Safe, secure and warm environment to promote children’s wellbeing and learning
Orchard Lea Nursery & Preschool Kingswood was established in 1990, formerly Orchard Lea Day Nursery and enjoys an excellent reputation from existing and former parents alike. It was extensively refurbished in 2011; with all childcare fully accessible on the ground floor level, disabled bathroom and lower ceilings for better acoustics.
We are registered to care for 65 children in total, between the hours of 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday. Our catchment area is the North/East and East Bristol area, with good access roads to the city center of Bristol – approximately two miles away and Kingswood approximately 1 mile away.
Our dedicated staff team are either qualified or working towards a relevant qualification. We are a mixture of ages ranging 19-70 many of us having between 1 and 19 years employment at Orchard Lea. We believe it is important that staff skills are regularly updated by attending workshops and courses organised in-house or externally. Relevant training is sought in line with changes in legislation or in order to support particular needs of children and families. All staff hold certificates in Child development, Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene, Manual Handling and Safeguarding. Designated staff attend on-going training for Special Educational Needs, Inclusion and Child protection, with this information cascaded to all other members of the staff team to ensure an inclusive and diverse knowledge throughout the team.
