An inspiring and nurturing nursery in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge

 Situated in a client setting, Bright Horizons have collaborated with Addenbrooke’s Hospital, but welcome all families in the area to the nursery. There is plenty of space for children to learn and explore, with five bright and airy age specific rooms.  

Each of the five rooms offer each age group their own specialised activities and equipment to support their learning and inspire their interests. Our well-qualified team of highly motivated, enthusiastic and experienced staff work together to provide a well-balanced programme of fun activities and learning experiences. A carefully planned curriculum, alongside our unique Ready for School programme, helps foster an enjoyment of early literacy and maths. Our Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians Enhancements, help children to recognise letters, words and numbers in their environment, becoming confident learners. 

Our nursery benefits from a large, recently refurbished garden for children to enjoy playing freely all year round.  The children are encouraged to play outside and in the sand, ride their bikes, and have stories read to them in the ‘magic story area’.

There is an easy parking area with 30 minutes’ free parking in limited bays near the Frank Lee Centre. All-inclusive fees mean that you have less to pack on a busy morning, with everything from healthy lunches and snacks to branded nappies and wipes included. 

The nursery was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted for their commitment to high quality childcare and education, with elements of outstanding.
Our long-standing team would love to meet the family, so book a visit with the nursery today to see all the benefits the nursery has to offer during the personal tour.

My name is Deborah. I am the deputy manager at Bunnybrookes. I have worked in the nursery since 2004. I started as a nursery assistant, completed my NVQ Level 3, became the preschool room leader, then started my role as deputy manager in 2010. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family- my husband and my 2 sons and my friends.

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!
