Ofsted rated us Good at our last inspection, reflecting our staff's dedication to providing the highest level of care for your little one.

Dedicated Spaces for Every Age Group

We understand how important it is for you that your child feels comfortable and at home during their nursery life. Our caring, enthusiastic and experienced staff are committed to providing the very best for your little one and our five age-specific rooms mean that your child will always have access to the most appropriate activities and equipment to support their needs and inspire their interests.

Children will also benefit from our enriching Bright Beginnings Curriculum, which focuses on wellbeing as the basis for successful learning and development.

Quality Time in the Fresh Air

Children adore exploring the great outdoors, and we encourage this by spending lots of time in our recently refurbished beautiful large garden and outdoor play areas. Children can enjoy outdoor learning all year round, and have fun riding bikes, digging in the sandpit, and listening to stories in our magic story area.

All-Inclusive to Make Life Easier

Your child will enjoy a wide variety of tasty, healthy meals, all lovingly prepared by our onsite chef. And to make those busy mornings a little easier, our fees include essentials such as meals, snacks, nappies, wipes, nappy cream, and formula.

A Great Location for Easy Drop-Offs

Our Bunnybrookes nursery is located in the Frank Lee Centre of Addenbrookes Hospital, making it the perfect setting for hospital staff as well as families from the area. For an easy nursery run, you can park free for 30 minutes. We're also close to Cambridge train station, which is ideal for commuting parents.

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

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.
