The Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery opened on Sept 23 1991 in a room at Camborne School and Community College and was registered for 22 children 0-5 years old.
Two years later we expanded and were registered for 50 children.
In 1998 the school was full to capacity and needed the rooms the nursery occupied, so we had to look for a new home.
After many enquiries and much work we received funding from N.R.F, S.R.B, D.F.E.S & Neighbourhood Nursery Initiative to build a new purpose built nursery on the site of Rosemellin Community Primary School.
As well as being a registered charity, the Gooseberry Bush became the first Neighbourhood Day Nursery in the South West of England. Gaining this status gave us government funding and we are committed to working in partnership with other agencies to help children and their families in Camborne to achieve a better quality of life.
We offer a high standard of care in each of the five rooms which are staffed by Early Years practitioners, qualified nursery nurses, and other carers who are working towards their NVQ level II and level III in Childcare and Education.
The Gooseberry Bush’s first and main aim is to provide a good quality care in a safe, happy and stimulating environment for babies and young children.
Open All Year Round (except for bank holidays).
Monday to Saturday - 8am to 6pm
At the Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery, we are actively promoting fundamental British values, in line with the EYFS framework. In practice, practitioners will challenge negative attitudes and stereotyping, along with encouraging children to learn right from wrong, to develop a sense of themselves and a mutual respect and tolerance to treat others as you would want to be treated.
