Our Setting

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 rooms at the Old Potting Shed have been carefully designed to offer the best possible environment for your child; we offer childcare to children 0-2 Yrs Seedlings, 2-3 Yrs Saplings and 3-4 Yrs in our Pre School.


Our Ethos

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 and ensure that our care is tailored to meet the needs of each individual.

We place a strong emphasis on 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.


Our Facilities

Each section of the setting is planned to facilitate play, social interaction and enjoyment. Age specific activities are available in each room and children are encouraged to explore in our ‘discovery rooms’.

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!

Our Soft play area has been a fantastic addition to the setting and has proved a popular space for children of all ages allowing them to explore their skills and capabilities through play and help them develop both physically and socially.
