Feel at home in our bright and welcoming Farnborough nursery

Welcome to Farnborough Day Nursery and Preschool, where our dedicated and long-standing staff provide the best childcare and early education for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Our last Ofsted report rated us Good, demonstrating our caring staff's commitment to providing the best for your child.

Learning Environments for Every Child

In our nursery in Farnborough's under 1s room, your little one will love discovering our exciting soft play area. And when they're all tuckered out, they can have a snooze in our separate sleep area.

We have several spacious rooms for ages 1 to 5, to help your little one on their first steps to independence.

Getting Ready for School

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 development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Your child will also have access to our lovely children's kitchen, where they can cook up a storm learning about healthy food choices.

Exciting Gardens to Explore

Little ones have oodles of fun in our beautiful garden and outdoor play areas. Age-specific learning environments ensure your little explorer always has the best resources to discover, from the mud kitchen and wildlife area to our gardening and vegetable patch.

Extended Hours and All-Inclusive

Our Farnborough nursery offers extended opening times from 07:30-18:30, to ensure you have enough hours in the day to get everything done. And as we're an all-inclusive nursery, you're covered for essentials including meals, snacks, nappies, wipes, nappy cream, formula, and sun cream. Every meal is prepared fresh onsite by our very own chef!

A Stress-Free Drop-Off

Our nursery is located close to Farnborough train station, offering excellent transport links. We also have on-street parking and a buggy park.

Your Personal Tour

We would love to meet you and your little one. To see the nursery yourself, why not book your very own personal tour? We're excited to see you.

I have worked across a number of settings within Bright Horizons during my 8 and a half years with the company, starting out here at Farnborough in July 2012.

I started out my journey as a nursery assistant in the baby room and in 2015 I gained my level 3 qualification in children and young peoples work force. Shortly after receiving this qualification and with a thirst to gain further knowledge I enrol at Farnborough college of technology to gain a BA(hons) in early years education and practice, which iI was awarded in 2018.

I am passionate about supporting the individual holistic development of every child that attends our setting and I feel that the most effective way to achieve this is to work in partnership closely with our families.

My favourite part of any day is observing the creativity of our children and how it can extend their learning and development.

As a practitioner and manager I believe that ever day is a day to learn, and my favourite teachers are the children.

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.
