The perfect place to grow, learn, and discover in Fulham Wharf

Welcome to our spacious nursery in Fulham Wharf, set in a Victorian Grade II listed building, which has been designed to enrich your child's learning and development. Rated 'Good' at our last Ofsted inspection, our dedicated team provide high-quality care and early education for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Designed for Every Age Group

Every age group has their own dedicated room, filled with everything they need to help support their development, independence, and early education. This ranges from our baby sensory room, a safe space with exciting toys to inspire their curiosity, to our preschool room, which focuses on preparing your little learner for their next step to school.

So Much to See and Explore

To give your child the best experience possible, our Fulham nursery features a variety of exciting areas. Little ones can tumble in our soft play area, enjoy a snooze in the cot room, experiment in the science lab, become a computer whizz in the IT studio, unleash their inner Mozart in the music room, and become a little Picasso in our art studio.

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start 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.

Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and learn what keeps them engaged throughout the day.

Freshly-Prepared Meals

To support mealtime independence, your little foodie will love sitting with their friends in our dining room, as they tuck into a wide variety of tasty meals. Prepared onsite every day by our very own chef.

Exploring the Great Outdoors

Your child will love spending time in our spacious garden, which is split into areas for each age group. With a mud kitchen, slides, trikes, and much more, there's loads to explore.

Our older children also enjoy weekly trips out of the nursery, visiting local parks and the library.

Essentials All Included

To help with those busy mornings, our Fulham Wharf Day Nursery and Preschool is all-inclusive. All meals, snacks, wipes, nappy cream, nappies, formula and sun cream are included.

Perfect for Commuting Parents

Our nursery in Fulham is just a five-minute walk from Imperial Wharf train station and Fulham Broadway tube. There are several bus routes and easily-accessible parking.

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.

Fulham Wharf Day Nursery and Preschool Deputy Manager

Alison McCarthy

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.

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.
