A place to grow

Our nursery setting is open Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 18:30, for children aged 3 months to 5 years. 


We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. Our unique Healthy Hearts and Minds activities provide inspirational and engaging learning experiences using the innovative Boogie Mites and myHappymind programmes. 


Two large outdoor play areas with a beach and a watch tower gives ample opportunity for children to explore the world around them. Our highly qualified and dedicated staff team helped us to secure an Outstanding result in our latest Ofsted inspection.

Clapham Village Day Nursery and Preschool Manager

Paul Fitzpatrick-Spinks

My journey with Bright Horizons Family Solutions started in 2010 as a Deputy Manager. I was promoted to Nursery Manager at the same nursery and remained there until I moved to open our Crouch End Nursery and Preschool in 2014 which achieved a OUTSTANDING rating with Ofsted. I have been working in childcare for over 17 years when I completed by BTEC National Diploma in Early Years. I have worked in a variety of settings including private nurseries, Sure Start, as a nanny and working abroad for a holiday company.

I continued my career progression with Bright Horizons with promotions to Senior Nursery Manager, Regional Manager and Regional Director. Working in a regional role has been an incredible experience and I am excited to utilise the skills I have gained over the past few years at Bright Horizons Clapham Day Nursery and Preschool. I genuinely enjoy my job and I am so fortunate to work in a profession that is constantly evolving and changing and one that is challenging in all the right ways every day.

My journey started in April 2012 when I first joined Bright Horizons as bank staff.

In September 2014  I successfully interviewed for and was offered a Room Leader position in the baby room. I was involved in planning and setting up the baby room. Due to my performance and desire to progress, within 4 months I was promoted to head of the under 2’s / Room leader of one of our Toddler one room. With my continuous dedication and hard work I was promoted to Deputy Manager within a further 4 months.

Childcare is my passion and I will continue to display this in everything I do.

Candy Floss

Hi, my name is Candy Floss, I joined Bright Horizons in March 2010 as the ‘Super Safety Hero’ to help nursery children stay safe and manage risks. My role as a Health and Safety Super Hero is unique to Bright Horizons and I’m in every nursery, 365 days a year.

Back in 2010, I saw a job advert for a Zebra Super Safety Hero – I was very excited, applied and was invited for an interview with several other zebras. We were interviewed by all the children who then voted on which of us would be their Super Safety Hero. It was hoof biting but I was thrilled when they told me I was the most voted for by the children who all loved me because of my cape and bag. My bag is very special, if something fits inside, it’s a choking hazard. You might be wondering how I got my name. The children in our nurseries chose five names and voted for their favourite. I love it as it’s unique, I mean have you ever heard of a zebra called Candy Floss? Exactly!
