BS3 Community provides excellent early education and childcare in our two community centres located in lovely Southville and Bedminster. Our Southville Centre, an old school bought from the Council for only a pound, was opened in 1991 and the charity added a nursery provision to the organisation shortly after. Our Chessel Centre is purpose built with little people in mind, as well as with room hire for the surrounding community, and was opened in 2017.

Our nurseries really capture the community feel of the charity, and they have a certain soul to them that is hard to put your finger on. Here at BS3, we offer beautiful outside spaces for your children to play in. Our friendly and inclusive staff encourage child-led play, and our caterers provide them with healthy and fresh food.
