Our ethos

Childcare Bath is an independent family business, not part of a corporate chain. We honestly prefer to spend our time interacting with your children, rather than chatting with one another!

Our owners, Jacqui Watson and Louise Malkin, have spent their entire careers in childcare and really enjoy running Alice Park and Riverside Nurseries. Our employees, too, are dedicated and qualified but, best of all, they’re just, well... friendly and welcoming. We’re all passionate about looking after children, and making their days as happy, relaxing, exciting and fulfilling as we can. For us, offering little extras and being kind isn’t just a question of good business sense. We just really love looking after small children and, apparently, that shines though. Perhaps that’s why almost all the people who send their babies and toddlers to us are recommended by other parents.
