A place to grow

St Mary's children's pre-school in Twickenham is a bright, happy children's nursery, situated on the main road just a short walk from Twickenham train station, Strawberry Hill and the town centre. 

We have recently undergone a stunning £20k refurbishment to our garden, which now offers plenty of play and exploration opportunities in all weather. We are located in a purpose built building on one level. A spacious room offers plenty of natural light and can accommodate children aged 3-5 years. We are rated 'Good' by Ofsted and have been a top 10 nursery in London on for three years running. 

Our aim is to ensure children in our care are developing to the best of their abilities within an environment that promotes their individuality. We provide a superb environment which allows the children to develop their interests and be challenged. Our nursery offers a homely and friendly environment. Staff are always there to listen and support both you and your child to settle into nursery life as quickly and smoothly as possible.  

Our delicious, healthy and nutritious food, sourced from trusted suppliers is prepared and cooked by our very own chef. We hold a 5* EHO rating for food safety and hygiene. Menus change seasonally and cater for all dietary requirements. We also offer Wrap Around Care which consists of a Breakfast Club and an After School Club. This caters for children out of school hours, term time only. We are located within the catchment of St Mary’s Church of England Infant School and St Stephen's Church of England. We will be delighted to welcome you to St. Mary's pre-school in Twickenham. 

Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

Sunny Dowlatshahi

I have been working in childcare for 20 years, managing various settings for the past 17 years. I took a break for few months to spend time with my family and joined Bright Horizons in January 2017 when I joined the lovely Twickenham West Nursery and Preschool as a Nursery Manager transferring over to Asquith St Mary's in January 2018.

I feel I have the best job in the world and I'm very excited and proud to be working with a team of professionals.

I strongly believe we should provide a home from home environment to help every child to feel happy and secure when they are with us in 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!
