You and your child will love our bright and welcoming Fulham Wharf Day Nursery and Preschool. Designed with enriching activities and environments, we are expertly placed to support your child’s development from the age of 3 months to 5 years.

Each age and stage is provided the best quality care and facilities. Babies enjoy a sensory room with toys that encourage their motor skills and curiosity, and benefit from a separate sleep room where they can recoup their energy for more learning. All children can take advantage of our brilliant IT and art studios, alongside our science lab. We even have a music studio with daily music classes to keep the creativity flowing.

Preschool children have a separate dining room that creates a similar environment to school and supports their understanding of mealtime independence. Our Ready for School programme, with Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians activities, further supports their school readiness. Older children also enjoy weekly trips to the local park and library.

Fulham Wharf nursery boasts a spacious garden, large enough to split into areas for each age group. This includes a mud kitchen for experimenting with nature, and plenty of space for tricycles, slides and balance equipment.

To give your child the energy they need to grow, experiment in our science lab and explore in the garden, we provide them with delicious and nutritious meals every day. These are prepared within our nursery by our own in-house chef using fresh ingredients.

Our nursery in Fulham is ideally located for commuting parents, situated just five minutes’-walk from Imperial Wharf train station and well served by local bus routes. There is easily accessible parking for drop-offs and pickups.

Our long-standing team would love to meet you and your child, so book a visit with us today and we will show you all our nursery has to offer during your own personal tour.

Paola Testoni - Nursery Manager

Paola Testoni

I have been working for Bright Horizons since January 2015. I am originally from northern Italy and have been living in London for the past 25 years. I gained my NNEB Diploma in 1996 and achieved an NVQ Level 4 qualification in 2010 and have been working in childcare for over 20 years, gaining a wealth of experience in both the state and private sector and working my way up from Nursery Nurse to Room Leader, Deputy Manager and finally Nursery Manager in 2010.

I achieved my first Outstanding Ofsted rating in 2011 and this inspired and motivated me even more to continue developing such a rewarding and fulfilling career.

I absolutely love my job and I always go the extra mile to ensure that my team and I create and maintain a welcoming and inclusive environment supporting and challenging children to make the best progress they can.

Joining Bright Horizons has been a huge step in my career and I am focused on being a contributing and effective member of a large and dedicated family wishing to make a difference to children’s lives.

I was born in Fulham and have lived there my whole life, where I met my husband and brought up a large family.

I have a Level 3 Diploma in Early Learning and Childcare and first started working in nurseries 18 years ago. After 4 years, I left because I found out I was pregnant with my 5th child. When my youngest son was 9, I then came back to work full time at Active Learning I love coming into work every day, meeting the parents and learning about the children, every day brings something new and special. I am very passionate about my job, I love to see what the children have achieved by time they are ready for their next steps.

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.
