A place to grow

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.

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.



Our excellent nutritionally balanced menu is changed regularly to encourage a varied diet and is approved by Action for Children. Here is an example of a typical menu.

Meet the Team

Kate Williams Bickley Deputy Manager

Kate Williams

I started my journey at Bright Horizons in 2006 as a Nursery Nurse. I took a short break from my Nursery career in 2010-2014 to have my two sons.

When I returned to Nursery I worked my way up to become a room leader of the Toddler unit before becoming Deputy Manager in 2016 at Bright Horizons branch in Sevenoaks.

I have been based at Bickley Bright Horizons since September 2018. Since becoming a Deputy Manager the role has given me the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills gained previously in supporting the staff teams and help to create an environment for the children to thrive in.

I love watching and supporting the children grow and develop from babies and seeing them start on their new adventure to school

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.
