Families love our beautiful, purpose-built Epping Day Nursery and Preschool which has been rated 'Good' by Ofsted. Every aspect has been specifically designed to meet the needs of your child's development, from 3 months to 5 years.

A Bright Beginning

Our research-led Bright Beginnings Curriculum will give your little one the very best start. Your child's wellbeing is our highest priority and we know that children learn best when they feel safe and secure.

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.

Our unique Growing enhancements introduce your child to maths, reading, writing, and art, and our Ready for School programme further supports their skills and knowledge to prepare them for school and beyond. Stay updated with your child's day via the Bright Horizons Family app to see what they have been enjoying.

Inspiring Natural Curiosity and Exploration

At Epping Day Nursery and Preschool, we support each developmental stage with age-appropriate rooms.

Our under 2s enjoy the Explorers room with a variety of fun activities and toys to help them learn through play whilst children aged 2 years and above in our Adventurers room have direct, free-flow access to our large, secure garden, allowing for independent exploration of the learning opportunities there.

Our children love being nestled among trees, enjoying a variety of outdoor activities including those within our Active Athletes programme.

  • Snacks, formula, nappies, creams and wipes are also provided, so there's less to pack on those busy mornings.
