It was party time filled with fun on Friday at Bright Horizons Witney Day Nursery and Preschool, as the newly refurbished setting, located on Edington Square, held a Teddy Bears picnic for its families and team.
Shona, nursery manager at Bright Horizons Witney Day Nursery and Preschool, said: “It was so great to put on this event for our community. We have been open for a couple of months now. This was a fantastic opportunity for us to celebrate with all our families in our state-of-the-art setting. All the works that have gone into transforming this building just make me feel so proud and we are so delighted to see how much the children are enjoying our amazing environment . It’s such an exciting time.”
The Mayor of Witney, Councillor Owen Collins, also joined in with the celebrations and officially declared the nursery ‘open’.
Councillor Collins said: “It was wonderful to see the local community and families come together at this new Bright Horizons nursery. After a tour of the facilities, I was delighted to join in with fun. The children were all so engaged in their learning environment. The early years are so uniquely important led by very special practitioners, like the team here at Witney, who help to shape children’s lives.”
The new nursery boasts bright and spacious rooms. Little ones benefit from using the large gardens, allowing them to improve their physical development, motor skills and balance no matter the weather. The curriculum in use at Bright Horizons Witney is in place across all Bright Horizons nurseries in England. It is called Bright Beginnings and was designed to acknowledge the individual voice and needs of each child to promote confidence, wellbeing, and a genuine love for learning.
Please visit Witney’s website for more information on all aspects of the nursery or to book a tour. Currently, there are spaces at Bright Horizons Witney for children over two years old. This August also sees the setting launching holiday, breakfast and afterschool clubs. Children up to 11 years of age are eligible to be enrolled in these.
