Nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills near Blagdon, Bristol on the beautiful grounds of Coombe Lodge The Old Potting Shed offers a unique and idyllic setting for children grow and learn.
Our facilities at the Old Potting Shed have been carefully designed to offer the best possible environment for your child; we offer all year round day care to children 0-2 Yrs Seedlings, 2-3 Yrs Saplings and 3-4 Yrs in our Pre School.
Our Early Years Dulverton Group Catering Team prepare fresh meals, using locally sourced ingredients, which are delivered to The Old Potting Shed daily. The seasonal menu's run on a 3 week rota and provide well balanced, nutritional home cooked meals, for the children to explore new tastes and flavours as well as learn that meal times are a sociable and enjoyable experience.
We offer both the 15 hours universal and 15 hours extended for 3 and 4 year olds and two year old funding which is currently offered as a stretched offer.
We have extensive outdoor space adjoining each of our buildings and the grounds of Coombe Lodge; we make the most of the outdoors, no matter the weather and place great emphasis on the benefits of outdoor learning.
In addition to the scenic grounds we have an indoor Soft play area which has been a fantastic addition to the setting and has proved a popular space for children of all ages!
Our aim to provide childcare where all children feel safe, valued and nurtured and our families are included. We work with a child-centred approach inspired by in the moment planning and ensure that our care is tailored to meet the needs of each individual.
We recognise the importance of social education and through a key person system, we are able to build strong and lasting relationships with our families and children and ensure that every child is given the opportunity to learn, play and grow in a safe and happy setting.
