A place to grow

Located close to Bexley, Dartford and Crayford stations, Wilmington Day Nursery and Preschool is a five-minute drive from the A2 and the M25. The children's nursery has been established for over ten years and we are very proud of our long-serving nursery staff. The children's nursery can take 103 children from three months to five years.  

Bright Horizons Wilmington completed a total full nursery refurbishment in 2019. Throughout the nursery, we have had all new flooring installed, new baby room layout  all the rooms painted and refreshed.

We have five rooms: a baby/toddler room, nursery room and preschool. The nursery provides a friendly, family feel where everyone knows each other. The nursery also has two outside areas, including one specifically for the under-twos. Both areas have an all-weather surface, meaning the ground is safe in all conditions. The outside area also attracts lots of wildlife, providing many learning opportunities for the children. The nursery works in conjunction with the parents, inviting them to share their work experiences with the children, offering lending libraries for the families and inviting them to open days at weekends. This is so that working parents have more time to look through learning journals, speak to key people and, of course, play! 

Our unique Healthy Hearts and Minds activities provide inspirational and engaging learning experiences using the innovative and well established Boogie Mites and myHappymind programmes.

We also offer eight-week childcare 'settling in' sessions for new parents and children. This enables families to build a relationship with the nursery prior to the child actually starting. We provide parents with regular updates on their child's progress as this offers reassurance and comfort at a key time. Our babies and toddlers have a daily contact book so parents and the key people can share thoughts and information. Our quarterly parents evenings are a further opportunity to strengthen the partnership between parents and carers. We will be delighted to welcome you to Wilmington Day Nursery and Preschool in Dartford Heath. 

 

Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you so why not book your visit today?

Candy Floss

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!

Why Bright Horizons

The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
