Children’s Nursery

Set in four and a half acres of green space, the city farm nursery provides a unique experience for children (0-5 years) to learn and flourish through interacting with nature.

The nursery building itself was specifically designed with this purpose in mind and each room opens out into private gardens and play areas.

Choosing the city farm nursery for your child, doesn’t just mean welly walks, mud kitchens and egg collecting – you’ll also become part of a thriving local community, where parents are encouraged to get involved.

Our waiting list is currently very long and, unfortunately, we can’t accommodate all families who apply. If you choose to apply, knowing that our waiting times are long (usually longer than a year) and that you might not get a place, please understand that your application fee will not be refunded, should we not be able to allocate you a place. Please note that the £20 application fee is to help cover the administration costs of managing the waiting lists; it should not be seen as a guarantee of, or deposit on, a place.

Our nursery is split into four ‘blossom’ rooms for different aged children. Find out more here.

Farm Adventurers is a unique, all-year-round childcare experience for children aged two to five years to experience farming and nature in the heart of the city.

Vision & aims

Over the past three years we have successfully achieved the Bristol Standard, a self-evaluation framework that supports settings to develop and improve the quality of provision. In July 2019 the Nursery was inspected by Ofsted and received a judgement of Good.
