Bath YMCA currently operates 5 nurseries in Bath and Wiltshire and is committed to providing an exceptional standard of care in all centres.:

Whilst each nursery has its own identity and operates slightly differently, each share a common YMCA ethos that differentiates them from other providers.

The 5 nursery managers regularly meet and work together to share good practice and constantly strive to deliver outstanding care. Staff vary in skills and experience with many staff qualified to degree level or holding nationally recognised childcare qualifications. Other staff are currently studying towards approved qualifications.

Peace of Mind

All five nurseries are registered with Ofsted and links to their latest reports are available from their individual pages on this website All staff and volunteers have enhanced CRB clearance before starting work.
