Welcome to Happy Days, Bodmin

About our nursery

Situated in a quiet location well away from busy traffic and overlooking the Camel Trail, children can enjoy outdoor adventures every day in our extensive outdoor play and activity areas, allotments and field. Our natural outside surroundings provide our nursery with endless scope for creative, free-flow play that fosters well-being and allows children to create and build their own miniature worlds and environments. We have staff which are specially trained in outdoor learning.

Our nursery is on the site of Berrycoombe CP School and enjoy a close working relationship with our primary colleagues to ensure a smooth and happy transition when it’s time for your child to start school.  

We have a number of children with English as their second language, including Polish, Portuguese and Romanian. We support these children in their development of English and their home language.

Our nursery is open from 7.30am to 6pm, 51 weeks per year, offering childcare and early years education to children aged 12 weeks to 5 years.

All our team have had outdoor environment training, so your child is always in the best of hands, inside or out. With free-flow and open-ended play, your child can choose the activities and where they play.
