About Us

GVHDN_Nailsea-Garden (16)Golden Valley House Day Nursery in Nailsea has been providing the community with high quality childcare since it was established in 1990.

Emma & Andrew McCarthy have been the owners of Golden Valley House Day Nursery since 2008. Emma has 20 years’ experience in primary schools as a teacher, deputy and head teacher.  Andrew has an IT background and retrained in childcare before becoming a nursery owner.

“We loved the nursery so much when we first saw it because it encapsulated so many of our own feelings about caring for children.  We also loved the “home-from-home” cosiness that the nursery has.  Since we have been here we have strived to build on the nursery’s great reputation by not resting on our laurels but continuing to find ways of improving – we are always interested in new ideas!”
