Eddington Day Nursery and Preschool has been purpose built to offer high quality care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years, primarily for staff and students of University of Cambridge with spaces for the wider community available.
The four home rooms are each resourced and tailored to the children’s different age groups. There is also a naturally inspiring outdoor play area where your child can explore and flourish. Our brand new nursery offers a range of activities that will support your child’s development in a home-from-home environment. Nutritionally balanced meals are prepared fresh each day by our onsite chef.
Eddington is the heart of a new district developed by the University of Cambridge, which has been known as the North West Cambridge Development, and is located between Madingley Road, Huntingdon Road and the M11.

I started with the company in June 2009 and was appointed as the Nursery Manager for Bright Horizons Bunnybrookes Nursery in Cambridge, I then took the opportunity to progress further. In 2011 I transferred to Bright Horizons Long Road, a nursery that was for Cambridge University Hospital staff. This nursery offered me the opportunity to work with a larger number of children and build a successful staff team.
The new opening at Eddington for Cambridge University has offered me an opportunity to use my experience on building strong teams and to use my skill set and knowledge to provide excellence to every child and family each and every day.
I have a wealth of experience working alongside families to understand the Ethos through play and how we can collaborate together to make the most out of each of their children’s experience.
I am very passionate about providing excellence and also providing opportunities for my team to grow and to be unique and independent through their work to maintain excellence each day.
I have almost 20 years’ experience working with children, a BA in childhood and youth studies and I am a qualified Early Years Teacher. I have worked in various settings including a year in Melbourne Australia providing me the opportunity to explore and study national and international approaches to child care and education. This has benefited my approach to practices, instilling a focus on child centred development and ensuring every child is given the best start in life. I am passionate about establishing best practices in my settings by encouraging staff development and parental collaboration.
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.
