A Beautiful New Nursery in Basingstoke

We are looking forward to welcoming families to our new nursery, opening in Basingstoke in September 2020!

Our brand new nursery is a home away from home environment which feature seven individual 'home bases', each tailored to children's age and developmental stage.

The extensive garden is directly accessed from all ground floor home bases and offers ample opportunity for outdoor play and learning. 

Within each room our highly qualified staff use our 'Growing Programmes' alongside the innovative Boogie Mites and myHappymind programmes to offer inspirational and engaging learning experiences for our children. 

Nutritionally balanced meals are freshly cooked each day by our onsite chef, catering for a wide range of dietary requirements.

Our pre-school 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.

We are now taking enquiries for September, so please call us today to discuss your child's requirements. 




Our excellent nutritionally balanced menu is changed regularly to encourage a varied diet. Here is an example of a typical menu.

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.
