Explore, learn and have fun at our Bracknell nursery

Your little one will feel happy and nurtured at our welcoming Bracknell nursery. Set in a lovely converted house, the nursery environment has been carefully designed to support children's development and education as well as inspiring them in our forest and vegetable growing areas, mud or children's kitchen.

Recognised as 'Good' by Ofsted we look after children from 3 months to 5 years.

Making an Easy Transition

We know how daunting the transition from home to nursery can be for families. Your little one's journey will be supported by our caring staff who provide a fun, engaging and enriched learning environment every day.

Tailored Baby Care

Your little one's nap routine is important for their wellbeing and development. You can rest assured that your baby will feel secure and have their needs met with our uniquely tailored care. We'll follow your child's sleep routine, giving them what they need and you the peace of mind you're looking for. We even offer a separate sleep room to ensure a peaceful nap.

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life 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.

Outdoor Learning and Exploration

Your little one will have access to our fabulous garden and vegetable growing area, so they can enjoy the outdoors and learn about growing foods. They can also explore the ever-popular mud kitchen, go on a bug hunt in our forest area, and listen to stories under our canopy. We also have separate garden spaces with age-appropriate resources.

Homecooked Meals and Children's Activities

Little ones will love our delicious, nutritionally balanced meals made with fresh ingredients by our own chef. They'll enjoy eating in our comfortable home-style setting and can even become budding chefs in our very own children's kitchen.

All-Inclusive Care

Our Bracknell nursery is all-inclusive, with meals, snacks, milk, nappies, and wipes included.

Farnham Day Nursery and Preschool Manager

Michelle Tamburrini

I have been in the childcare industry for 13 years working my way up from a nursery assistant.

I began my journey working towards my level 3 qualification in childcare shortly after this. After 6 years I progressed into a deputy manager role and found the thirst for knowledge so then embarked on my Foundation Degree journey.

Through this my passion for implementing and embedding outstanding practice sparked and shortly into this qualification I was offered a nursery manager role. The teachings I had helped me to steer my team and influenced my leadership style to achieving my first outstanding nursery inspection. Since then I have worked in a number of nurseries for Bright Horizons implementing quality and standards to ensure the parents and children get the right start on the educational journey.

Nikki Hopcraft

I have been with Bright Horizons since 2001. I have completed my NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Childcare and Education and also my advanced Diploma in Childcare and Education. I started work as a Room Manager in the 2-3 year old room and then progressed to Deputy Nursery Manager.

I have seen many families go through our nursery and have enjoyed being a part of the children’s development. I have two young children, one of which attends Dolphin Bracknell Nursery.

I work alongside the Nursery Manager to deliver the highest quality care and education for children and families. I also regularly spend time in the nursery rooms observing and mentoring staff in addition to spending valuable time with the children.

I have worked within the childcare sector for 14 years. I started out in my career as a nursery assistant where I also attained my NVQ LEVEL 3 in Childcare and Education.    I have experienced different roles within my career ranging from nannying to my current position as Deputy Manager. Along the way I have gained a great deal of knowledge through experiences caring for children aged between 3 months and 12 years of age, and I am passionate about providing children with a safe and secure environment, enriched with a wide range of learning opportunities, that is supported by caring and knowledge staff. I have an amazing family who support me to achieve the best outcomes in my career and two beautiful daughters

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.
