Excellent outdoor facilities and supportive learning

You and your little one will love our Ofsted rated 'Good' Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool. Our spacious and bright setting has been designed for children from 3 months to 5 years. We'll help them thrive and encourage them to learn and embrace their independence.

Excellent Resources for All Age Groups

Babies and little ones under 2 love spending time in our calm, cosy, and inviting baby room, complete with a comforting sleep room. This gentle and nurturing environment will help your little one create positive relationships as they transition from home to nursery life.

Your child will be engaged, entertained and interested as we keep them busy with a wealth of exciting, age-appropriate activities. They'll also love gaining independence, as they discover their classrooms at their own pace, focusing on activities which most interest them.

In our preschool room, your little learner will enjoy getting ready for school using our specially designed resources for learning enhancement.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start 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. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

You can follow your child's nursery day via the Bright Horizons Family app.

Exploring the Great Outdoors

Outdoor play has never been such fun, and your little explorer will love discovering everything our large, landscaped garden has to offer - from cooking up mud pies in the mud kitchen to making up adventures with their friends. Our garden offers play slopes, a cubby house, a quiet retreat area and an all-weather music space.

We also take the children on regular trips to the local park and explore the natural surroundings.


Our Beckenham nursery is all-inclusive, with meals, snacks, nappies, wipes, formula, nappy cream and sun cream included.

Secure and Convenient Location

We're conveniently located within walking distance from Elmers End Station and has access to several local bus routes. We also have a convenient buggy park.

Meet the Team

Amy Salt-Dean Beckenham

Amy Salt-Dean

I have worked in Childcare since I was 16 years old and began my journey in a nursery environment in 2011 after completing my early child hood and psychology degree. Whilst working at my first nursery I had the opportunity to complete my Early Years Professional Status.

I am very confident, friendly, compassionate, enthusiastic, honest and very committed to every child, family and team member I have the pleasure to be part of the learning experience within the nursery.

Being a part of a child's journey, teaching them new things, watching them develop, learn and grow with your support is the most rewarding job in the world!

In my personal world I enjoy spending time with my daughter who is 3 and half years old. We enjoy cooking, going on adventure walks in the woods, making up stories and arts and crafts.

Beckenham Deputy Manager Rachel

Rachel Lunnon

I started my Childcare journey in 2007 after a long career as a PA. I have worked my way up from apprentice, level 2 practitioner, level 3 practitioner, Pre school room leader, 3rd officer in charge and to deputy manager.

I am very confident, friendly, compassionate, enthusiastic, honest and very committed to every child, family and team member I have the pleasure to be part of the learning experience within the nursery.

I have always had a strong passion for children, and have always loved teaching them new things. When I made my career move I knew that there was nothing else I would rather do.

Being a part of a child's journey, watching them develop, learn and grow with your support is the most rewarding job in the world!

In my personal world, I love spending time and making memories with my husband and 2 daughters. I enjoy singing, writing, reading, drawing and watching films.

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.
