Bright Horizons Active Learning West Hampstead offers care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years, close to all local transport links.
The nursery benefits from an airy spacious environment, a separate creative room, role play and library for our Preschoolers as well as a exploratory room for the younger children. The large garden also means all children can explore the natural world around them.
Children in the nursery are well prepared to transition to school with our Ready for School Programme which includes Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians. We also benefit from our very own specialist teacher focusing on English, Maths, Science and Sports. Our nursery also provides French, ballet and Zumba lessons.
All-inclusive fees include all meals, snacks, branded nappies, wipes and creams. All our food is freshly cooked by our on-site chef and is nutritionally balanced and all the menus have been accredited by the Children Food Trust.

My career in the early years sector has grown over the last 12 years through different roles. This has given me opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of the areas within an early years setting. I have completed my NVQ level 2, 3 and 4 in early years care and education. My passion for career progression allows me to support my team’s knowledge and self-development.
I have been with Bright Horizons since 2012. As a manager I believe the children are the centre of all we do, and by supporting the team we create enabling environments for all children, giving them opportunity to explore and be involved in a variety of play activities.
I am also a mum to 3 boys, my youngest has always attended the nursery setting. This has allowed me to see nursery life from a parent’s perspective, giving me the understanding that the parents need to feel and know they are leaving their child in a safe and secure environment where they can learn and grow.
I gained my National Vocational Qualification in Children's Care, Learning and Development in 2007, Prior to this I graduated with a BA in Fashion Design.
I have been with Bright Horizons since 2010, where I began my journey as Head of Room for Preschool. I enjoyed supporting children's learning and development whilst working in partnership with parents, supporting families and leading a small team.
I have worked in a number of roles for Bright Horizons including 3rd in Charge, Deputy Manager and Nursery Manager.
I joined Active Learning JW3 in November 2016 as a Deputy Manager to cover a maternity post and I am now looking forward to continuing my career at Bright Horizons in my role as Business Manager at Active Learning West Hampstead.
I am passionate about childcare and thrive on providing a safe, educational, home away from home environment where children can learn and develop whilst enjoying their time at nursery.
I thoroughly enjoy my interactions with children and will often be found with a group participating in an activity, whilst supporting and motivating the team in providing exceptional experiences for the children within our care.
I am committed in providing a culture of behavioural safety and an environment of Keeping Everyone Safe.
