Families love our purpose-built nursery rooms with age-appropriate play and learning resources to suit children from 3 months to 5 years.
Rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, Barnes Day Nursery and Preschool are committed to building on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum through our Bright Beginnings Curriculum.
Designed by our Early Years specialists, the enriching curriculum focuses on children’s wellbeing as the foundation to successful learning.
Your child is nurtured and supported through their development and will flourish and reach their full potential by participating in a combination of activities that provide the best start to their education.
Our baby room is the perfect, safe environment for your little one to explore and enjoy our sensory toys. We also have a separate sleep room, milk kitchen and nappy-changing room
The toddler room offers safe adventures where your child can practice newly developed physical skills and build independence. Painting, messy play, construction and loose parts play are just some of the daily activities they’ll enjoy.
Your preschooler will develop new interests in our preschool room through our Ready For School Programme, where early maths and literacy skills are enjoyed along with other Growing Enhancements. Your Creative Cook, Growing Artist or Growing Scientist can develop a healthy and happy approach to learning.
Our library is available for every age and stage, and our very own children’s kitchen will spark their interest in preparing, cooking and eating healthy food.
Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app to see updates including photos and videos.
Children love our two large gardens with trees and covered seating areas, conveniently separated for age-appropriate play. Our baby garden and toddler garden are suited to each developmental stage and provide a safe space for your little one to explore.
For your preschooler, our designated area includes a little bridge and secure zone for tricycles and balance toys.

My career in childcare started at our Richmond nursery. After a short while I was promoted to a room leader and then transferred to Barnes to become the Deputy Manager. During my time working at Barnes I have found my passions that I can share with the children which are encouraging exploring through play and assisting children to develop their senses through sensory development.
Hi my name is Jessica. I have been working for Bright Horizons since June 2018. I started as a baby room leader and then transitioned to toddlers and preschool.
I have a wide range of experience with all age groups. In 2020 I was promoted to Deputy Manager and now support with the day to day running's of the nursery along side supporting the staff and children in the rooms.
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.
