A warm and welcoming nursery in Banstead

Families love our reading library. Parents are welcome to enjoy this space with their little ones as well as borrow books for extended reading time at home.

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.

Getting Ready for School

Our holistic yet personalised approach will support your little one throughout their time with us and prepare them for school and beyond. Little ones of all ages love our fun and popular Boogie Mites sessions, with exciting opportunities to learn about the world through music and song.

Preschool children will enjoy building knowledge and confidence in reading, writing, maths, art, and more through our Ready For School Programme. We support children Everyday through life skills which are practised such as serving at mealtimes, tying shoelaces, toilet training and effective communication.

Outdoor Adventures

Candy Floss

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.
