A Welcoming and Nurturing Nursery in Cambridge

Welcome to Cambridge Science Park Day Nursery and Preschool. Our Ofsted-rated Good nursery is set on the grounds of Cambridge Science Park and delivers excellent care and education to children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Bright and Spacious Rooms

We have five large, open-plan rooms, giving your child lots of space to explore, learn, and play. Each room features age-tailored resources and fun, imaginative learning environments to help each child thrive, with every room having free flow access to its own garden area.

In our cosy Explorers room, babies aged between 3 and 18 months spend their days exploring social skills, sensory activities and environments designed to spark their curiosity and imagination.

Older babies love our large Investigators room, which features lots of different areas, allowing the children to discover their independence and choose activities that interest them.

2 to 3-and-a-half-year-olds spend their days in our Experimenters room, which is for early preschoolers. Activities are planned around topics inspired by the children's interests, making every day unique and full of learning opportunities.

Inventors is our spacious preschool room, run by a qualified preschool teacher who works with the children to prepare them for school.

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.

Getting Ready for Their Next Steps

To ensure your little learner is confident to start school, our older children take part in our Ready for School programme, which brings structure and focus to maths, reading, writing, and other essential skills they need to get ready for school.

Learning in the Great Outdoors

Every room has access to its own dedicated garden space, which features resources and activities to aid your child's development. We also have a lovely communal courtyard with a large built-in sandpit, perfect for sensory and imaginative play.
