A place to grow

Elizabeth Terrace Day Nursery and Preschool is conveniently situated on Elizabeth Terrace, just behind Eltham High Street within five minutes' walking distance of Eltham train station and all bus routes.

There are three light and welcoming rooms with a free-flow policy, which allows children to choose their own activities and follow their interests. Each room is plentifully equipped with age-appropriate resources and wooden furniture. Interactive whiteboards and touchscreen computers help children grow in confidence with IT as they learn about the world around them. Our stunning garden offers plenty of opportunities for exploration and play.There is a sandpit and a planting area where children can grow flowers, fruit and vegetables. Some of the produce even makes it into our meals!


Our fees are now fully inclusive of wipes, nappies, creams and milk for all age groups.

Our delicious, healthy and nutritious food is sourced from trusted suppliers and changes on a weekly basis with seasonal variations. All dishes are prepared and cooked by our very own chef who caters for all special dietary requirements. Our kitchen holds a 5* EHO rating for food safety and hygiene.

We are open 51 weeks of the year, and we will be delighted to welcome you to Elizabeth Terrace Day Nursery and Preschool. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

Candy Floss

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.
