Our preschool room provides support with your child's transition to school with our unique 'Ready for School' programme, ensuring that your little one is confident to take the next step on their learning journey.

All-inclusive fees cover all meals, snacks, branded nappies, wipes and cream and also offer 30 hours funded childcare for qualifying parents. Nutritionally balanced meals are freshly cooked each day by our onsite chef, catering for a wide range of dietary requirements.

Tracy Elser

I have a Degree in Early Years Care and Education as well as an EYPS qualification in early years teaching. I’m an experienced manager and truly aim to deliver the best for our families. I’ve been a nursery manager for many years and have worked in various nurseries to support and develop each setting, as well as their teams. I’m so excited have joined the team here at Basingstoke and have exciting plans to take this new nursery further.


I enjoy seeing children grow and thrive by providing the best quality care and education, but also making sure each child has a fun and engaging experience, inspiring young minds helping them flourish. I strive to give children the best possible start in life whilst ensuring they can learn in safe, nurturing environments.


I pride myself in leading the team to develop their continuing professional development and supporting them in their future aspirations, passing on the knowledge I have and creating an inspirational place to work.


We’re very much looking forward to meeting you soon! Book your personal tour today!

Copper Beeches Day Nursery and Preschool Deputy Manager

Emma Webb

I have worked at Bright Horizons Basingstoke since 2009. I started as Bank Staff and have worked through the roles and currently hold the role of Deputy Manager. During my role, I support the day-to-day running of the nursery and supporting staff, families and children, to provide excellent service childcare for all. I have my own two children who have both attended Bright Horizons Basingstoke which has given me an insight into life as a working parent, enabling me to better support those around me and the families in the setting. I have a level 3 qualification in Early Years. I am passionate about childcare and enjoy watching the children grow and develop during their time with us.

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.
