The Honeytree also provides childcare at our sister nursery in Portishead

Nursery and pre-school care for children aged 3 months to 5 years

Honeytree Bristol is located on Filton Road next to the Orchard School. We have just undergone an extensive refurbishment to build what we believe is one of the best nurseries in Bristol, with brand new rooms, all natural resources and an outdoor area designed to light up the fervent imaginations of our children!

We believe strongly that every child is unique and develops at their own rate. We therefore ensure that all children have individual learning opportunities that allow them to explore and grow into confident children.

Please do get in touch- we’d be delighted to show you around!

Age groups

Our nursery is split into 4 rooms, with each room devoted to caring for a specific age range. We’ve designed our nursery so that children move between rooms when they are ready, not based on when their birthday is.

Here at Honeytree Day Nursery Bristol our days are not rigidly structured but all rooms try to keep to a routine which the children can recognise and anticipate. A familiar routine helps to ensure that your child is happy and secure.

Sunshine Room & Butterflies Room

Our baby rooms cater for children from 6 weeks to 2 years old. The baby rooms are light and spacious with access out into their own garden, away from the hustle and bustle of older children.

Our home-from-home approach to care means we endeavour to follow your baby’s individual routine to make their transition from home to nursery as smooth as possible. Staff ensure all babies receive individual attention, making them to feel safe and secure. A designated cot room allows children to sleep peacefully throughout their busy day!

Little Bees Room

Our Little Bees room caters for children aged 2-3 years. The room is a natural cosy space with designated areas created to engage toddlers’ interests.

At this age children start to really make sense of the world around them. We encourage children to be creative, exploratory learners and independent little people. Throughout the day children enjoy a mixture of adult-led activities and are given the opportunity to access resources independently, allowing them to make their own choices.

Busy Bees Room

Our Busy Bees room caters for children ages 3-5 years. The pre-school rooms are large, bright and open plan filled with resources to support children in their transition to school. They are introduced to letters and sounds, problem solving and team work activities.

An increase in structure throughout the day allow the children to become aware of routines, instructions and to improve attention and listening. Our ‘Rising Stars’ program is designed to help prepare your child for the next big step up to primary school.


Honeytree Bristol is open all year around from 7:30 am-6:00 pm. We are closed on bank holidays and for a week between Christmas and New Year.

  • Full Day Session 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
  • Morning Session: 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
