Welcome to Mells Nursery!

Mells Nursery was awarded 'Outstanding ' in all areas by Ofsted in March 2020. We are a registered Charity operating as a voluntary run, private, community, pre-school for children aged 2 years old until school age. Our setting operates during school term-time only. We serve the picturesque Somerset village of Mells and the surrounding area, approximately three miles from Frome.


We provide a caring, safe place in which children are encouraged to be independent, curious and question the world around them. We work with the Early Years Foundation Stage as a long term plan to help each child reach their potential. We welcome you and your child to our nursery and hope that their time with us is enjoyable and that from learning through play the children receive a foundation for life. 


Every child should be happy, secure, valued and confident. At Mells Nursery, our philosophy is to value every child as a unique individual who enjoys learning and thinking for themselves. We provide a supportive and secure environment in which every child can flourish and learn at their own pace and in their own individual way.


Our role is to stimulate and encourage their development and enjoyment of learning through a variety of different activities in secure indoor and outdoor situations, through play and through structured and creative activities. We encourage the growth of social skills and empathy amongst the children. The relationships which the children develop with each other and with our staff are central to their happiness and lay the best possible foundation for their future.
