Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Dolphin Kingston Nursery and Preschool is in a great location for travel links into London.

Our nursery is a two-storey building with age appropriate rooms for the children. We have an ICT and Science Studio, which the children can access on a daily basis. Our children enjoy the Cooking and Art Clubs where they can freely explore and experiment their senses.

We offer extracurricular activities including Teddy Tennis, Baby Yoga, Rugby and Jo Jiggles.

We have two gardens where the children can extend their play and learning experiences.

Children are well prepared to transition to school with the unique Ready for School Programme including Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians.

Meet the Team

Jasmina Haigh

I started working at Bright Horizons in 2014 and had a role of a Regional Manager. I took a break in 2015 for 6 months to spend some time with my children, aged 6 and 8.

I have worked in the Early Years sector for 25 years, managing various childcare provisions for the past 17 years. 

 I hold a BA Hons Degree in Early Years Education and Leadership and  I am also the lead Safeguarding Officer within the nursery. 

I am proud to work for an outstanding nursery which provides high standards of care and education for children aged 3 months-5 years. I am also delighted to be working with experienced, dedicated and passionate childcare professionals, who put children first.

Kirsty Watts

I am the Deputy Manager at Dolphin Nursery and I have been working here since 2011. I was Room Leader before I got promoted to Third in Charge. I have held previous Deputy Manager Roles in other nurseries so I have had management experience before I became the Deputy at this nursery. 

I wish to continue the outstanding environment that we have achieved already and build the staff team to continue the excellent care towards the children. I have a wealth of experience with the younger age groups. I am also the Keeping Everyone Safe Co-ordinator and also hold a qualification in Health and Safety and an NVQ in Management.

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 10 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
