Step into the world of learning and creativity at Didcot

Welcome to Bright Horizons Didcot nursery and preschool, where we are dedicated to providing unparalleled care and early education for children aged 3 months to 5 years old. Our exceptional team of long-standing staff ensures a nurturing environment.

Conveniently located near many schools, Didcot nursery is situated in close proximity to the A34 and Didcot train station, offering easy & quick access to London.

Children love exploring our purpose-built nursery and preschool. With a warm and inviting atmosphere, we have seven individual age-focused rooms, each tailored to specific age groups, inspiring children to safely explore and pursue their interests. We ensure the best start to schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress, whether transitioning between rooms or preparing for school.

Our baby room, designed to encourage curiosity and help children reach their milestones, includes an individual cosy sleep room, providing quiet rest when needed.

When it's time for outdoor fun, your explorer will enjoy our large, all-weather garden with separate age specific areas, perfect for inspiring their imaginations; and while your child is busy exploring and having fun, stay connected with their day-to-day experiences and development through our Family app, available to all Bright Horizons parents.
