See your little one flourish at our nursery in East India Dock

Your little one will love spending their days in our warm and welcoming preschool in East India Dock. Uniquely set in a beautiful newly refurbished setting in a secure residential area, and rated as 'Good' by Ofsted, we welcome children from 2 to 5 years old.

Giving Your Child the Best Start

Each of our specially designed rooms features age-appropriate facilities, resources, and toys to help your little one as they grow. Your child will be encouraged to follow their own interests at their own pace throughout their journey with us, as they make new discoveries and learn essential key skills along the way.

To prepare your child for starting school, our preschoolers have a dedicated classroom where they are supported by a qualified preschool teacher.

Budding chefs will love getting stuck into cooking and experimenting in our children's kitchen, where we teach children all about healthy food choices and get a little messy doing some hands-on cooking!>

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it 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 development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and learn what keeps them engaged throughout the day.

Exploring the Garden and Local Area

Your child will be able to enjoy lots of outdoor time in our beautiful private garden, which is full of exciting activities to explore. We also have a lovely allotment, where little green fingers can get stuck in, growing vegetables and learning how food is made.

Our nursery in East India Dock takes full advantage of the local area, with excursions out to enjoy local parks and riverside walks.

All-Inclusive Care

To help with those hectic mornings, our East India Dock Preschool is all-inclusive. All hot meals, snacks, wipes, nappy cream, and sun cream are included.>

Great Location for Commuting Parents

Ideal for commuting parents, we have a great location under a minute away from East India DLR and a 20-minute walk to Canary Wharf. Canning Town and North Greenwich tube station are also close by.

Our dedicated staff can't wait to welcome you and your little one to our East India Dock Preschool. For more information, or to see the preschool yourself, please get in touch and we'll be happy to arrange a personal tour.

Simona Merava

I have been working in Early Years for over eight years and I joined Bright Horizons in 2017.

I ensure the children have fun and that they are provided with the best care and opportunities to learn through play in a safe environment every day.

I am passionate about inclusive practice and I strive for every child to be given the most appropriate and personalised support possible. Watching the children thrive in their most important stage of development has been very rewarding and I really enjoy what 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.
