The Old Potting Shed

Children's Nursery & Pre-School

'Helping children to grow, inspiring them to blossom.'

Nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills near Bristol, and only five minutes from the A38, The Old Potting Shed offers a unique and idyllic setting for children aged six months to compulsory school age. Situated within the grounds of Coombe Lodge, you will find us hidden within a beautiful Victorian walled garden. The Old Potting Shed has been transformed into a purpose built nursery with outdoor space that has been landscaped to support child development. Our passion is caring for your child and we aim to provide childcare where all children feel safe, valued and nurtured. We offer a child centred environment with a programme of activities that are tailored to meet the needs of each individual. Every child will be given opportunities and experiences to learn, play and grow in a safe and happy setting.

The Old Potting Shed is run and managed by Elizabeth Richards and Sarah Grannan, both experienced teachers. All our staff have been chosen with the greatest of care to ensure that they can deliver our high standard of childcare. We are all CRB checked and all of our key staff are paediatric first aid trained. As teachers we are aware of the benefit of professional development and therefore encourage all our staff to train to level 3 or 4 NVQ childcare.

We welcome children from across North Somerset including Blagdon, Wrington and the Chew Valley. We are ideally located for parents commuting to Bristol and Bath.
