A caring and spacious setting to support your child

Welcome to Elm Grove Day Nursery and Preschool. At our bright and nurturing setting, we’re dedicated to giving children aged 3 months to 5 years the very best care and education to give them the best start.

Warm and Enriching Environment

Babies love their bright and cosy room. Here we have a sleep area, milk kitchen, changing area, dedicated garden, a separate area for non-mobile babies and lots of exciting sensory resources and toys.

Your toddler can have fun exploring our bright and spacious toddler rooms, where activities are planned around the children's individual interests, helping them reach their milestones.

In our preschool room, your little learner will have fun as they discover the key skills they need to prepare them for their next steps for school.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life 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 wellbeing, development, and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Specialist Rooms

Your child will be supported to discover their interests in our specialist rooms. These include a dedicated sleep room for naps, a children's kitchen where your child will learn about healthy food choices, a multipurpose art room, and an ICT and science studio.

Your child can also take part in our cooking and art clubs to enrich their nursery experience.

Outdoor Fun and Learning

With age-appropriate areas, our garden and outdoor spaces are exciting places to explore and make new discoveries. Your little one can have fun on the climbing frame, practise using their fine motor skills on the bike track and play with their friends throughout all weathers.

All-Inclusive Care and Convenience

  • Nutritionally balanced meals are prepared by our onsite chef. Our all-inclusive care extends to nappies, snacks, wipes, formula, and creams.
  • Our nursery in Kingston upon Thames offers excellent transport links for trains and buses. It is close to local amenities with a lovely local park nearby.

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.
