A Caring and Spacious Setting to Support Your Child

Welcome to Chigwell Day Nursery and Preschool. In our Ofsted Good-rated setting, we're dedicated to giving children aged 3 months to 5 years the very best care and early education to help them flourish.

Bright and Inspiring Rooms

Every room is filled with exciting and stimulating resources to aid your child's development and help them reach their individual milestones. From play trays and reading corners, to arts and crafts stations and construction areas, there is so much to discover.

Attached to the rooms is freeflow access to our wonderful outdoor space, which has age-specific gardens and play areas to fill your child's day with fun and unique learning opportunities.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings 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 wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

You can stay updated with your child's progress through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Exploring the Garden

Each classroom benefits from freeflow access to our large garden, which is divided into age-specific areas, ensuring the children have access to the best resources for their development and allowing them to broaden their understanding of science and nature.

Learning in Nature

As well as our lovely garden, the nursery is located next to a large nature reserve. We use the nature reserve in all seasons for nature walks and discoveries, bug hunts, picnics, and more.

Safety is Our Priority

The safety of your child is our number one priority. This is why all our practitioners are first aid trained and we have specialist SEND staff for children who require additional support due to special educational needs.

All-Inclusive Care and Convenience

  • Nutritionally balanced meals are prepared by our onsite chef. Our all-inclusive care extends to hot meals, snacks, wipes, nappies, formula, nappy cream, and sun cream.
  • Onsite car park.
  • Our nursery in Chigwell is located very close to Buckhurst Hill and Chigwell tube stations, making us a convenient setting for commuting parents.
