An inspiring and inviting nursery in Andover

Our spacious Bright Horizons (Formerly Yellow Dot) Andover Day Nursery and Preschool has been mindfully designed to support your child’s development from the age of 3 months to 5 years.

We have five large rooms filled with the best resources for each child’s age and stage. Whether that is a stimulating sensory area in the baby room, a messy play area, or a construction area to improve creative cognition, we take care to nurture the development of each individual child through fun and engaging means.

Outside, the nursery boasts a large garden. This is split into age groups to ensure our younger children can enjoy outdoor exploration in a safe environment. Older children benefit from a sand pit, climbing equipment, planting areas for gardening and a large mud kitchen. An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.

Our nursery in Andover is just ten minutes’ walk from the town centre, with bus stops opposite and our own car park for convenient drop-offs. All-inclusive fees, which include all meals, snacks, nappies and wipes, give you less to prepare in the morning.

Ofsted have awarded us a rating of Good in their latest inspection, reflecting our passion to deliver high quality childcare and education in Andover.

We would love to meet you and your little one, so book a visit today and we will show you all our nursery has to offer during your own personal tour.

Beth Lewington

I started working at Andover after transferring from Bright Horizons Thatcham (formerly The Grange). I worked at Thatcham for 5 years, gaining my qualifications in childcare and working my way up to Third in Charge. I was thrilled to learn that I could continue my journey at Andover and have recently achieved my professional dream of becoming the Manager.

In my spare time, I like to go on nature walks, listen to music and visit the beach. Within childcare I am passionate about outdoor play, den building and developing children’s interests.”

Deputy Manager at Andover Day Nursery and Preschool

Charlene Walke

I have been with Bright Horizons for 8 years and came into the business as part of an independent acquisition at Thatcham, at which we worked our way to Outstanding. I have now been at Andover Day Nursery since June 2020 with my son who also attends. I spend my spare time with my boy, family and friends, and enjoy going to see animals of all varieties.

I achieved my Level 6 in Early Childhood Studies from Portsmouth University and Early Years Initial Teacher Training status in 2016. I started my career at Andover Day Nursery in 2015 as a cover team worker and over the last 6 years, progressed through different roles to room leader and now Third in Charge.

I have a passion for the outdoors and spent my childhood in scouting, learning survival skills and camping at any chance! I also have a massive passion for Makaton. I am the champion here at Andover Day Nursery and hoping to develop and support this throughout our nursery and other Bright Horizons nurseries.

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.
