A home from home environment to grow and flourish in Canary Wharf

Bank Street Day Nursery and Preschool is loved by our families. This Ofsted Outstanding, purpose-built nursery, is located in a tranquil yet convenient setting of the Canary Wharf Estate.

A Bright Beginning

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Preparing for School

  • Our Ready for School Programme is designed to boost your preschool child's knowledge and confidence in maths, reading, writing, and more.
  • Children of all ages love our Boogie Mites which provides exciting opportunities to learn about the world through music and song.
  • Your little one will enjoy freshly prepared meals and the support to encourage them to serve themselves and use a knife and fork.

Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and receive updates including photos and videos of their favourite activities.

Designed for Every Age

We support each developmental stage with rooms and equipment designed for every age. Several of our practitioners are Qualified Teachers and hold degrees in Early Years Studies, which helps to prepare your little one with the skills they need for school and beyond.

Children also love our daily 'awe' and 'wonder' walks.

Ease and All-Inclusive Convenience

Just a short walk from the Jubilee and DLR Canary Wharf stations and our convenient buggy park to ease your drop-off and pick-up routine.

Bank Street Day Nursery and Preschool is perfectly located for parents who commute on to the Wharf.

Necessities such as nappies, wipes, creams, and formula are provided, along with delicious hot and cold meals, so there's very little to pack on those busy mornings!

Your Personal Tour

We are looking forward to meeting you and your little one to give you a personal tour and we welcome any questions you may have.

Naomi Runeckles - Manager, Bank Street Day Nursery and Preschool

Naomi Runeckles

I have been working in childcare since 2007 and hold a CACHE Diploma Level 3 in Childcare and Education. I joined Bright Horizons in 2011 as a Nursery Nurse and progressed through different roles becoming Nursery Manager in January 2021.

I am passionate about providing outstanding care for all children and helping to begin their life journey. I make it my priority to ensure all children are given the opportunity to engage in fun and meaningful activities to help them develop. Working in Early Years watching the children to grow and develop is the best job in the world.

In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family and going on holiday.

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.
