Columbus Courtyard provides care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years and is located on the South Colonnade end of Canary Wharf, ideal for commuting parents.
The nursery features bright, spacious rooms with floor to ceiling windows maximising natural light. Each room is tailored to the individual age groups of our children. Bright Horizons nurseries have a wide range of play and learning activities designed to encourage happy, confident children who are ready to enjoy a lifelong journey of learning, including our Growing Enhancements, a unique set of enhancements which focus on reading, writing, science, maths, physical activity and art.
In addition to our Growing Enhancements, Columbus Courtyard children enjoy Cookery Club, visits from our sports coach and Bilingual Beats sessions. Columbus Courtyard children are often seen out and about on the Wharf; we love to make the most of our fantastic location and explore local attractions like the Docklands Museum, roof top garden, watching the clipper boats on the riverside, and playing in the secured courtyard.

I have been working with Bright Horizons for over a year. I first started as a practitioner for the previous childcare provider and worked for them for 4 years until they were acquired by Bright Horizons. I was then promoted to Deputy Manager at Columbus Courtyard. My journey in childcare first started in 2010 where I completed my CACHE Level 3 diploma in Childcare and Education. I have had many different jobs roles such as Nursery Practitioner, Nanny and EYFS Coordinator. I really enjoy working with children of all ages. One of my passions is ensuring that the children have a fun, safe environment for them to grow and learn every day. There are so many wonderful things I love about my job but one of my favourite things is working with my team to ensure that the children are getting the best care and are happy.
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.
