Stockwood Day Nursery and Pre-School, Bristol

Situated just minutes away from the town centre and within easy reach of the A37, Partou Stockwood provides excellent childcare and education for children up to the age of five.

Visitors to our setting will notice that we don’t look like other nurseries in the Bristol area. That’s because we use recycled and real-life items in each of our rooms, believing that authentic treasures open up children’s imagination, helping them to develop key foundational skills.

Facilities

Large spacious playrooms filled with authentic treasures made from recycled or real-life items

A large outdoor area, featuring our own allotment and dedicated spaces for children to play

Healthy and delicious meals from our seasonal menu, freshly prepared at the nursery

A ‘home from home’ environment, creating the perfect atmosphere for children to settle

A friendly, experienced team of skilled Early Years professionals

Funded childcare places available

The Partou experience

At Partou, the children lead the way. They explore their surroundings and learn about the world they live in, by choosing for themselves which activity they want to join in with next.

Our team are there to care for them and keep them safe. To nurture their emerging abilities and encourage them to seize each fun-packed day. But not to tell them what to do next.

Why? Because when children are allowed to choose their own activities, rather than being told what to do, they naturally choose the activities they’re most interested in. And scientific research has shown that being interested in what they’re doing is the easiest and best way for children to learn.

Food & nutrition

Creating healthy eating habits for young children stretches far beyond their time with us. It encourages a lifelong positive relationship with food whilst building healthy bodies and healthy minds. Here’s how we encourage healthy eating habits:

  • Rotating menus: Evidence shows regular exposure to foods helps children to develop their taste for them, yet we still want to offer variety. So, we rotate our menus on a three-to-four-week basis, offering the perfect balance between exposing children to new foods yet allowing them to become familiar with flavours.
  • A lunchtime focus: We prioritise lunch as a time where children can enjoy their food. There is a social aspect to all lunches and, where possible, children are encouraged to take an active interest in the food they eat.
  • Fresh food everyday: We serve children fresh food every day and accommodate many different dietary requirements. We have procedures in place to protect children with food allergies and offer different meal options too. If your child has a dietary requirement, simply let us know as part of our registration process and we’ll make sure we meet the needs of your child.

Brilliant nursery with plenty of exploration play. My daughter loves it and always comes out happy. Most meals are very good, though the tea time options aren't always great being mainly sandwiches or wraps and tea is too early at 15:30pm. Apart from that, it's brilliant. The staff are all caring, ki...

The staff are very caring and understanding. My son went through a couple of weeks where he didn't want to go but they soon turned it around and now he runs in the door as soon as it opens. I can't thank the staff here enough, with how they have worked through all the lockdown's and continued to let ...

My son loved being at home with me so settling in wasn’t easy but members of staff were very understanding, helpful and friendly. Now he runs in without looking back and comes out all covered in mud so I know he had a good time playing in the garden with other kids. He still doesn’t eat his lunch...

Amazing preschool, love everything about it. My little boy comes out full of stories about what a great day he’s had. He gets excited to go and see the staff and his friends. I as a mum feel really involved with his development and how he is progressing. Thank you so much. Definitely recommend!
