An outstanding nursery dedicated to caring for your child in Islington

Welcome to Floral Place Nursery and Preschool. Our Outstanding nursery in Islington is dedicated to supporting children's development from ages 3 months to 5 years.

Giving Your Child the Very Best Start

Our 0-2 year olds room is perfect for developing your little one's social and physical key skills. The nursery's long-standing staff team offers a range of fun and stimulating sensory activities to help your child meet their developmental milestones.

Your little one will love exploring our 2-5s room, which features a wide range of age-appropriate activities and resources. We follow your child's individual needs and interests, so that we can support their progress and encourage their independence and unique curiosities.

We also have a lovely garden, which we use throughout the day so your child can enjoy making new discoveries while getting lots of fresh air. Your child can explore the all-weather garden at their own pace, which is filled with age-appropriate resources.

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

Freshly-Prepared Meals and All-Inclusive

Your mini foodie will love sitting down with their friends and tucking into a wide variety of delicious, healthy meals, all prepared by our onsite chef. And to make those busy mornings easier, our nursery is all-inclusive. Meals, snacks, nappies, wipes, nappy cream, formula, and suncream are included in your fees.

An Outstanding Nursery in a Convenient Location

We're extremely proud to have received an Ofsted Outstanding at our latest inspection, which demonstrates our dedicated staff's commitment to giving your child the very best childcare and early years education. Our Islington nursery and preschool has excellent transport links, located close to both Canonbury train station and Highbury and Islington tube.

Krissi Nursery Manager Floral Place

Krissi Ganesathas

I have an NNEB & NVQ Level 3 in Childcare, and have been in childcare for over 20 years, starting my career in play work with children from 4 to 11 years old. I soon developed a love for working with younger children and got the opportunity to work in day care, which has since been my passion.

Moving me further along to leading, which gives me the opportunity to share my experiences and lead teams to success, which I find very rewarding.

I love to watch young children develop and learn through play experiences that we provide, and knowing that we have such an important impact on their start in life.

Lenka Novotna - Deputy Nursery Manager

Lenka Novotna

I joined Bright Horizons 11 years ago as a bank staff member when my career in childcare first started. I completed my childcare qualifications within the company and due to my performance and desire, was soon promoted to senior position Preschool Room Leader and in 2010 to Deputy Manager, just few months before my son was born. I can truly say that Bright Horizons has played a significant and very positive role in my son's life.

Throughout the years with Bright Horizons I was able to attend many training courses to help me progress in my job role. I was also given opportunities to support other Bright Horizons nurseries and also manage Floral Place nursery as Acting Manager.

I have always wanted to work with children as you can really help them develop in their early years and see them develop and progress from when they start in the Baby Room until they graduate with us. It makes me proud to see them grow and be part of their lives.

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.
