Highbury Day Nursery and Preschool

Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Bright Horizons' nursery in Highbury is a modern purpose-built day nursery within the redevelopment of the old Highbury Stadium, offering excellent commuter links. The nursery boasts well resourced rooms for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and three great outdoor areas for the children to explore, (nursery garden, communal garden and nature reserve) one of which was part of the old Arsenal football club pitch.

Our team of experienced childcare professionals work closely with parents and the nursery holds regular family events throughout the year. An array of extracurricular activities for our children include Bilingual Beats, Spanish Lessons, Cookery Club and Gardening Club as well as visits from an Arsenal football coach for the over 2 year olds. A unique Ready for School Programme including Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians further prepares children for their transition to school.

Our fees include all meals and snacks, branded nappies, cream, bottles and formula baby milk as appropriate and we make drop off and pick up times as safe as possible with our convenient parent parking at the nursery.

Meet the Team

Irmina Paseveckiene

I have been with Highbury since 2013, but I joined Kidsunlimited/Bright Horizons as a nursery nurse in 2006 and worked up to nursery manager in 2014.

I have a Bachelor degree in early years education and 20 years’ experience in child care.

I am very passionate about providing inclusive play and learning opportunities for all children attending the nursery and to maintain a safe, stimulating and enjoyable environment. 

I always work with the HEART principles being honest, having respect, accountability and engaging with my team to achieve excellence. 

Samantha James

I have been working in childcare for 10 years and hold a Childcare Level 3 Qualification. I have experience working with all age groups, I progressed from being a Nursery Nurse to Room Leader / third in charge and am now Deputy Manager at our beautiful Highbury nursery.

I provide the children with a safe, enabling environment and ensure every child has the best possible start in their educational life. I pride myself in providing a fun, safe place for children to express themselves. I believe that the relationship and communication with parents is key and have made great relationships with parents over the years.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling to exotic hot countries and experiencing different ways of life and socialising with friends.


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!
