SNAPDRAGONS Nurseries Ltd, a family-run group of children's nurseries with 16 years' experience in the Bath area, is to open its 8th nursery by May 2014, just off the Gloucester Road.
The Old Chapel, where the nursery will be located, is a Grade II listed chapel and has a rich local history. Built in the 1840s, the chapel was for soldiers of the Gloucestershire Regiment based at the Horfield Barracks for over100 years. When the barracks closed in 1966, The Old Chapel was spared and has been used until recently as offices.
Work is underway to transform the building into a beautiful and inspiring space for over 100 nursery children. Spread over three floors, the nursery will offer a relaxed and comfortable environment for play and learning, including flexible creative rooms, an outdoor play area and a purpose-designed children's kitchen where children can learn to cook and explore healthy food choices.
Snapdragons Nurseries won a national nursery food award in 2012 and have a Gold Catering Mark from the Soil Association for their healthy menus and support of local and organic suppliers.
The nursery's owner, Rosemary Collard, said: "My family have been running nurseries in Bath and Wiltshire for sixteen years and are used to anticipating and meeting the needs of busy families.
"This is an exciting development for us and we are delighted to be introducing Snapdragons Nurseries to Bristol."
