With five spacious rooms dedicated to ages 3 months to 5 years, your little one will adore spending their days at our warm and enriching Chelmsford Day Nursery and Preschool.
The Best Resources for All Ages
We understand every child is unique and has their own way of doing things. This is why we'll work with you to make sure your child's individual needs are always met.
Little nappers will find the comfort and rest they need in their own dedicated sleep space, where we'll ensure their nap routine is the same as they have at home.
In our toddler room at Chelmsford Day Nursery and Preschool, your child's curious mind will be encouraged to follow their own interests and independence. Your little one will love having freeflow access to our bright and exciting garden, which they can explore at their own pace.
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.
Taught by a qualified preschool teacher, your child will develop new key skills that will help them thrive in school and beyond.
Exciting Outdoor Spaces to Discover
Your child will love all there is to discover in our large outdoor gardens. These fun spaces have been designed for each age group and are used to provide opportunities to extend your little one's learning and development. At our nursery in Chelmsford, children aged 3-5 have their own outdoor classroom.
Freshly-Prepared Meals Made Onsite
Little foodies will be in heaven as they tuck into freshly-prepared meals and snacks, all lovingly made by our onsite chef. And to give you a break on those hectic mornings, essentials such as meals, nappies, wipes, nappy cream, sun cream, and formula are included in your fees.
A Convenient and Secure Location
Located in Chelmsford two miles from the town centre and close to Chelmsford station, our nursery is ideal for commuting parents. To make the nursery run as easy as possible, we have onsite parking and a buggy park.

We would love to meet you and your little one at our Chelmsford nursery. Why not pay us a visit and book your own personal tour? We're excited to see you.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the NEW Bright Horizons Family App. The app will offer a variety of features that will give you the ability to get more information on your child's day than ever before, as well as being able to notify the nursery of any changes to your planned pick-up or absences, as well as booking extra sessions.
Where possible we look to offer flexible booking patterns and a range of funding options, including the government's 30 hours funded childcare* provision. To request pricing and availability, please request a call back by clicking the button below.

I have been part of the Bright Horizons family since 2009, joining Chelmsford in 2019. I hold an NVQ Level 3 Qualification and thrive from creating a stimulating, enabling environment for our children to grow and develop to their best potential.
At Chelmsford, we as a team work together to ensure the children in our care are happy, safe and flourishing throughout their nursery experience. My own son also attends the nursery, I can see from his developmental journey as well as his smile everyday that my team are creating and delivering the highest standards of care as well as having his best interests at heart.
I have worked for Bright Horizons since 2008 whilst studying for my level diploma in child development at Harlow College. I started as a student and worked my way up to Deputy Manager.
I have recently passed my level 2 mental health awareness qualification and level 2 counselling skills. I am extremely interested in furthering my career.
I thrive on achieving my goals and supporting and promoting our Nursery staff.
My passion lies in ensuring children in our care develop and flourish to their best abilities whilst supporting our families in our safe and secure environment.
