Our Outstanding Fulbourn Day Nursery and Preschool, eco-friendly in design and located within Capital Park, is designed to enrich the learning and development of your child, from the age of 3 months to 5 years.

Set in a green and tranquil environment, our spacious, purpose-built nursery has rooms tailored to suit each age group. We use babies’ natural curiosity and a range of sensory toys to help develop their motor skills, physical development and speech recognition. Toddler rooms are set up to help them learn more about the world around them – interesting shapes, textures and words. Preschoolers enjoy early reading, writing and mathematics in fun and interesting ways, alongside other subjects such as art and science.

To extend your child’s play and learning beyond our bright indoor facilities, Fulbourn nursery we have an extensive garden. Each age group has its own area, with age-appropriate toys to encourage physical development, coordination and teamwork. We even have a beautiful natural meadow that is used in the warmer months as an outdoor classroom.

Our nursery in Fulbourn is on the northern end of Capital Park. We have an ample onsite car park and great access to the bus routes on Fulbourn Old Drift. Our all-inclusive fees, including all meals, snacks, nappies and wipes, give you less to worry about on busy mornings.

Ofsted has recognised our commitment to providing excellent childcare with an Outstanding in their latest inspection. Local parents also recognise the high quality of childcare we provide, giving us a 5/5 star rating on Google Reviews.

Our highly qualified, caring staff team would love to meet you and your child, so book a visit today and we will show you all our nursery has to offer during your own personal tour.

Harriet Riches

I started my journey at Bright Horizons in January 2019 at our Wolfson Court nursery, covering their Deputy Manager’s maternity leave. On her return, I moved into the Third in Charge position and Baby Room Leader where I rediscovered my passion for working with children. I loved my time at Wolfson, and when the opportunity arose in June 2021 to move to Fulbourn and progress in my career, I took it straight away.

I began as Third in Charge, until October when I was successful in my application to become the Deputy Manager. I am extremely passionate about nurturing our children to grow and develop, and have a very open approach as I believe we also learn from them. I love to be creative with them too, sharing my ideas and helping the children’s imaginations come to life. The team here are fantastic and so important to me and I take pride in my approach to keep the environment fun and motivating for everyone!

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.
