A Beautiful and Welcoming Nursery in Hedge End

Set in a lovely Grade II listed farmhouse, welcome to Bright Horizons Hedge End Day Nursery and Preschool, where we provide the very best care and early education for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Tailored Rooms for All Age Groups

There are lots of original features within the nursery, which lends itself to the design and layout of the rooms.

Every room and feature has been designed to support your child's development from the age of 3 months to 5 years, with a strong focus on wellbeing and becoming lifelong learners. The rooms are thoughtfully laid out with a mixture of imaginative play equipment, creative areas, and much more.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings 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 wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that’s moving rooms or preparing them for school.

You can stay updated with your child’s day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Enriching Learning Programmes

At our nursery in Hedge End, your child will get the best start to their schooling life through enriching learning experiences thanks to our Growing Enhancement programmes. This unique programme introduces your child to essential key skills in subjects including maths, reading, writing, science, art, IT, sports, and more.

Outdoor Discoveries

Each of our rooms benefits from freeflow access to our large outdoor space, giving your child the opportunity to use the garden throughout the day. The garden has astroturf flooring, allowing it to be used in all weather.
