Welcome To The Playhouse
Located in Greenbank, Bristol Children's Playhouse is a charity which provides a supportive and stimulating environment for the whole family. Unique to the area it offers a family 'Drop-In' (stay and play) facility open Monday to Friday and a Pre-school. The Pre-School and Drop-in are housed in separate buildings but share the wonderful outdoor play area which has recently been updated with new toys and equipment.
Open since 1979 Bristol Children's Playhouse is a well used and essential part of the community. Our aim is to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in need within the family and provide quality pre-school education allowing children to gain positive experiences which will improve their confidence and self-esteem. We work against the isolation, deprivation and poverty of families and disadvantaged people within the community.
Working with Parents/Carers to provide an inclusive pre-school Nursery encouraging learning through play, positive self image and respect.
