Who Are We?

First Class Nurseries is a privately owned Day Nursery for children from 2 years to rising 5 years, established and run by experienced Nursery Nurse owners Lisa and Denise since 2002.

As a well established and respected Day Nursery, we pride ourselves on having achieved 4 consecutive OUTSTANDING Ofsted inspections to date.

Our aim at First Class Nurseries is to encourage children to flourish by providing both the highest standard of childcare and education.

We continually strive to provide a relaxed, friendly, safe environment for all children to be stimulated and reach their full potential.

Whilst your child is with us we are committed to achieving our objectives, that all children will acquire and develop initiative, independence and good social skills for a confident start to school.

Where Are We?

Originally located on the West side of Bridgwater, in 2017 we moved to bigger premises on Salmon Parade, where we've been able to fully re-fit the setting to address all the needs of the Nursery.

Just a few minutes walk from South East of Bridgwater's town centre, the Nursery is situated within its own grounds, where we have a fantastic secure garden and outside facilities and also off road parking.
