A place to grow

Harpenden Luton Road Day Nursery and Preschool is set in a beautiful converted Victorian house with rooms spread over three floors, including a 'must-see' log cabin nursery room. We are located within the catchment of many schools which include Roundwood School and Woodend School.  

We have seven bright and spacious rooms filled with high-quality furniture and resources for learning, exploring and investigating. In the main building, we have five rooms for our three month olds to two and a half year olds and a further two buildings for our nursery and preschool children. At our preschool and nursery in Harpenden, we have large outdoor play areas which give the children awareness of space through physical challenges, discovering nature and learning about the environment.

The children benefit from extracurricular activities including French lessons, a Little Kickers football session on a Friday morning. Our delicious, healthy and nutritious food, sourced from trusted suppliers is prepared and cooked by our very own chef. Menus change seasonally and cater for all dietary and religious needs.  

We will be delighted to welcome you to Harpenden Luton Road Day Nursery and Preschool. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff is on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

Name of person

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.
