Safe, secure and warm environment to promote children’s wellbeing and learning
Orchard Lea Nursery & Preschool Kingswood was established in 1990,
It was formerly known Orchard Lea Day Nursery which changed in 2008. We enjoy an excellent reputation from existing and former parents alike. Our nursery was extensively refurbished and extended in 2011; with all childcare fully accessible on the ground floor level, disabled bathroom and new baby and toddler unit.
We are registered to care for 78 children in total, between the hours of 07:30am and 6pm Monday to Friday for 51 weeks of the year. Our catchment area is the North/East and East Bristol area, on the boarder between St George and Kingswood areas of Bristol. With good access roads and bus routes to the city centre – 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.
