An Inspiring Nursery in Basildon to Learn, Grow, and Play

Welcome to Basildon Day Nursery and Preschool. At our Ofsted Good-rated nursery, your child aged 3 months to 5 years will receive the care and early education they need to give them the best start.

Spacious Dedicated Rooms

At our bright and welcoming nursery, we have several large, inspiring rooms, each dedicated to a specific age group. The rooms are filled with age-appropriate resources and activities to support your child to meet their developmental goals.

Your little one will love exploring our two large gardens, which are divided into separate areas to ensure your child always has access to the best toys and resources for their development. The children enjoy freeflow access to the gardens, giving them the opportunity to choose where they learn and play.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

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

Building on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings 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 wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that’s moving rooms or preparing them for school.

You can stay updated with your child’s progress through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Getting Ready for Their Next Steps

To ensure your little learner is confident to start school, our older children take part in our Ready for School programme, which brings structure and focus to maths, reading, writing, and other essential skills they need to get ready for school.

Exciting Opportunities

As well as our wonderful rooms and large gardens, we’re fortunate to be inside a David Lloyd Club. As such, the children have access to extra-curricular activities such as swimming and tennis lessons, and the David Lloyd dance studio and soft-play area.
