Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Rated Good by Ofsted in May 2015 Active Learning Kingston offers care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years, and is conveniently located for commuting parents from Kingston and Norbiton stations.

In addition to our key workers we employ Specialist teachers in Art, Music Sport and a Nursery Teacher who will impart their knowledge and enthusiasm for their subject to your children. The nursery boasts a large garden, fully equipped art studio, a preschool science lab and an IT studio, as well as a sensory room for the younger children. We also offer Ballet, French and mini massage every week.

All meals are nutritionally balanced and prepared, using fresh ingredients by our own chef including organic meat, dairy, fruit and vegetables wherever possible.

Hema Mawdia

I have been with Bright Horizons for 11 years. I started my journey at Pimlico Nursery and Preschool in 2005 and have worked myself through the nursery up to Deputy Nursery Manager in 2013. I then joined Active Learning Kingston in September 2016 and been working as Deputy Manager since. I am passionate about the work I do and it gives me great satisfaction to encourage children’s development. I work with the Nursery Manager to provide an inviting, safe and warm environment for all the families that come to the Nursery.

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!
