A place to grow

Our nursery setting is open Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 18:00, for children aged 3 months to 5 years. 

We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. Our large garden is equipped with a mud kitchen, wildlife area, gardening patch and ball garden for our Active Athletes club. 

Our highly qualified team helped us to secure a Good rating at our latest Ofsted inspection.

Manager Farnborough

Kate Richards

I have worked in child care and education since 2007 and I joined the nursery in 2010 originally as pre-school teacher. I achieved my early years professional status from Kingston University having previously completed my NVQ Level 3. 

I have two children of my own, who are growing up fast, but inspired my passion for early years.

Farnborough Day Nursery and Preschool Deputy Manager

Tania Austin

I have been in childcare over 10 years and started my career at Windsor Day Nursery Asquith in 2008 and worked my way up from nursery assistant, nursery nurse, Asquith nanny to deputy manager over various settings. Through my years of experience being both a nanny and a nursery nurse I can really sympathise and understand what a parent goes through with choosing a nursery and building that bond with the staff team. I really try to ease the parents and make them feel as comfortable as possible.

I am very passionate about childcare I love to spend time in the rooms and building up relationships with the children. I also love to strengthen and grow my staff team to the best of their ability. In my spare time I like to go to the cinema, go out for dinner and spend time with my family.

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!

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.
