A place to grow

Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School is one of several day nurseries in Twickenham and is located in the grounds of Trafalgar Infant School, serving the local community of Twickenham. 


The nursery is set in a large open green area with Kneller Gardens and Crane Park on its doorstep, which makes it an ideal location for children to explore the outdoor natural environment. Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School has been operating since 2004 and is well-established in the area. It has excellent links with Trafalgar Infant School making every child’s transition to ‘big school’ a happy and seamless process, regardless of what school they attend when they leave us. In addition, the nursery is situated within the catchment area of many other local state and private schools. 

Our one level building provides excellent access for anyone with a disability and excellent special educational needs support is provided by the local Borough Council and our nursery team. Our specially designed adventure garden includes a role play cycle track, sand pit, shade sail, outdoor classroom, nature exploration garden and much more to help stimulate and develop children of all ages in the great outdoors. We strongly encourage all our families to get involved with the nursery team in providing high quality learning opportunities.  

We celebrate our children's varying cultures and our parents' careers or talents. We have had many of our parents come in and share what they do with the children and this is always greeted with enthusiasm. We will be delighted to welcome you to Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

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!
