Welcome to Happy Days, Thornbury
About our nursery
Thornbury Happy Days is an 81-place nursery/pre-school setting in Cooper Road, open from 7am to 7pm, 51 weeks per year, offering childcare and early years education to children aged 12 weeks to 5 years. We are ideally located close to commuter routes into Bristol and Gloucester and has designated parent parking for ease of drop off and collection.
Happy Days are a proven high-quality childcare provider, who have achieved 11 Ofsted Outstanding judgements - 8 of those since January 2016. We provide secure, calm and neutral environments and wonderful outside areas with free-flow access throughout the day, and all our resources are carefully selected to allow children to experiment, explore and enjoy. A hug, a story, a song, a time to explore, experience and learn - it all happens naturally every day.

What our parents are saying
"The ethos behind the Happy Days Nursery - Thornbury is second to none. It provides a calming environment where children are supported at all times and their independence is encouraged."
The Thornbury Nursery & Preschool has beautiful toys and a fantastic outdoor area ensure that learning through play can occur in a range of ways and staff adapt plans throughout the weeks to give all children opportunities to thrive."
"Our child has settled with the Thornbury team incredibly quickly, and his key worker has a strong understanding of his needs."
"At times when I've fed back something you have been keen to listen and where possible act upon what I've said. This I really value, knowing that if I do have an issue it gets dealt with promptly and effectively is very reassuring as a parent."
"My children have now been supported by Happy Days for a year. I've been really happy with the care and support they have received during the time they've spent with you."
"My daughter is also very well supported at Happy Days and is always keen to go, and full of her day on collection. Being a working mum is not the easiest job but Happy Days have cushioned the difficulties for us all."
"Thank you so much to you and your team for providing such an outstanding nursery for my children. I wholeheartedly recommend you to all my friends."
