Our vision at Somerset Nursery is to provide a place where children can enjoy a safe, nurturing and happy learning environment where their personal achievement and development is supported and encouraged by caring and nurturing staff. We strive to deliver a programme which provides opportunities to develop children’s wellbeing, communication, curiosity and creativity.

We have three separate locations to choose from, depending on the age and stage of your child.


Ages 0-3

At Fitzroy Place, we offer free extended settling in sessions for all children, which we base on the needs of the child and the requirements of the parents. Our vision is to ensure we have happy, engaged, confident, curious, creative, independent, resilient, and empathetic children. We are able to do this as we offer an environment which is supportive, responsive, and sensitive to the needs of our families.  The staff at Fitzroy Place focus on the care and development of each child as the unique individuals they are.

Don’t just take our word for it

“We are delighted we chose Somerset Nursery as our nursery! Our daughter attends nursery full time, and so it was really important to find a nursery where she is happy and cared for, and Somerset definitely meets these requirements. The staff take such good care of her, and her development since she started in August has been incredible to watch.”
