Bright Horizons Bickley Nursery and Preschool is a modern, purpose built nursery benefiting from light and airy rooms enabling all our children to learn and develop in a welcoming environment.
Our nursery is located in a convenient location close to Chislehurst and Bickley Train Stations. In our most recent Ofsted inspection we achieved ‘Good’.
We have a large, spacious outdoor area and the gardens are spilt into age appropriate areas, which includes a mud kitchen, a vegetable patch, and a wooden play house. A variety of outside activities are offered for fun and extended learning. The nursery staff team hold a wide range of knowledge and experience and we also offer extracurricular activities such as Sports for Tots. Our all-inclusive fees include meals, snacks, branded nappies, cream, bottles and formula milk as appropriate, enabling the transition from home to nursery a smoother experience.
All our freshly prepared nutritious meals are cooked on site catering for all dietary requirements. We are able to provide convenient parent parking at the nursery for safe drop off and pick up times.

I have twenty five years’ experience within nursery settings, including a management portfolio of twenty years. I graduated in 2000 with a BA in Early Years and hold a formal level 3 Early Years certificate. I will be the designated Safeguarding Officer for Bickley and I hold both First Aid at Work and Paediatric First Aid certificates.
My vision is to continuously provide quality childcare and an excellent service for all children and their families and I will work hard to ensure that we are providing the very highest standards of childcare possible.
Having managed several high profile nurseries and helped build their practice to a high standard, my goal has always been to ensure parents are not only satisfied with the practice, but reassured that each individual child's safety, development and care is at the forefront of our aims.
I am honoured to be joining the Bickley team and to be part of all of the wonderful families here. I believe that forming strong relationships with all families is key to delivering quality childcare.
My great passion is to inspire my staff team to ensure that all children within the setting are provided with exceptional childcare and take the greatest care to provide the right level of support and encouragement ensuring all children grow in confidence, build on important social skills and learn at their own pace in an enabling and creative environment. The key to a successful nursery is the engagement of the whole team, so celebrating success and recognising the staff’s hard work is a highly regarded part of my role and I am looking forward to getting to know all the staff team and sharing the great work they do each and every day.
