A place to grow

Our nursery setting is open Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 18:30, 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. Extra curricular activities include Tennis, Spanish, Yoga and Cookery Club; we also have an interactive SMART table. 


Two large outdoor play areas with a beach and a watch tower gives ample opportunity for children to explore the world around them. Our highly qualified and dedicated staff team helped us to secure an Outstanding result in our latest Ofsted inspection.

Maria Lezova

My journey started in 2009 when I joined Bright Horizons as a nursery practitioner in preschool at Regents Park Nursery. 

Due to my performance and desire to progress, within four months I was promoted to room manager of 2-3’s, leading a team of 4-5 people. 

After a further four months I was promoted to third in charge, joining the management team and aiding in leading up to 30 people.

 In 2013 I successfully interviewed for and was offered a deputy position in Crouch End. I was involved in planning and setting up the nursery which opened in May 2014. Our team currently has 36 staff members and I am proud to now be manager of Crouch End Day Nursery and Preschool.

My journey started in April 2012 when I first joined Bright Horizons as bank staff.

In September 2014  I successfully interviewed for and was offered a Room Leader position in the baby room. I was involved in planning and setting up the baby room. Due to my performance and desire to progress, within 4 months I was promoted to head of the under 2’s / Room leader of one of our Toddler one room. With my continuous dedication and hard work I was promoted to Deputy Manager within a further 4 months.

Childcare is my passion and I will continue to display this in everything I do.

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.
