Our nursery setting is open Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 18:00, for children aged 3 months to 5 years.
We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. Our rural location with on-site farm means children have plenty of space to explore. Our extra-curricular activities include Boogie Mites and myHappymind, encouraging a healthy lifestyle from a young age.
Our highly qualified team helped us to secure a Good rating from Ofsted in our latest inspection.

I have been employed at Crocus Early Years Centre since December 2001. I originally started as third in charge/room manager in preschool and after a period of acting manager early in 2008 was promoted to centre manager in August 2008. I have worked in childcare for over 25 years since having my own children in preschools and at a crèche. I completed my Foundation Degree in Early Years in January 2013.
I joined Crocus Saffron Walden 17 years ago and was a nursery assistant when I first started. I have over the years progressed to Deputy Manager. I am also the room leader for preschool and one of the nursery’s Senco’s.
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.
