A place to grow

Bright Horizons Guildford is a workplace nursery located in the grounds of Surrey University on Egerton Road, off Richard Meyjes Road. 


The nursery is exclusive to staff and students at the University of Surrey and has four home bases and a large garden. The garden is split into two sections to allow the older children to explore without distressing the smaller babies, who may be playing in the garden space at the same time. Both sections of the garden include all seven areas of our Growing Programme to encourage the children to continue learning in the fresh air. 


Throughout the year, the nursery holds various events to encourage staff, parents and children to socialise. These include events such as our Easter Egg Hunt, Summer Picnic, Christmas Lunch and a visit from Santa. Stay and Play events are held regularly during the year. SatNav users please use GU2 7AD.

Leah Dyer

I have worked for Bright Horizons for 6 years, my previous role was also in a client based nursery where I was the third in charge and room manager of the 2-5 years room.  I hold a level 6 qualification which I studied for while working alongside the children. As part of my studies I completed a research project on boy’s play which I found extremely interesting. One of my responsibilities within the nursery is SEND, supporting children with any additional needs for their learning. 


In my spare time I like go clay pigeon shooting with my partner and watching the Formula 1. 

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!
