Our brand new nursery will offer six individual rooms tailored to each age group as a large external play area for the toddlers and preschool children and a separate baby garden for the babies. All age rooms have been designed to be flexible and allow children to flourish and explore while building a lifelong love of learning. Children in the nursery are well prepared to transition to school with our Ready for School Programme which includes Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians. All our food will be freshly cooked by our on-site chef and is nutritionally balanced.
An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.
The nursery will be located two miles west of Horsham town centre, with excellent rail and road connections.

I started my childcare career working as a preschool assistant in a term time mornings only setting which suited my then family situation thinking this will be something to keep me occupied not realising I would be bitten by the childcare bug! I eventually bought this business and continued to run it for further 6 years at which time my family circumstances had changed and I was able to work more hours.
In 2006 I applied to be an acting nursery manager to cover maternity leave at a day care setting in Surrey not entirely certain what I was taking on. It soon became clear that giving the children in my care the best possible start in their lives mattered to me and I was thrilled when I was appointed permanent manager. During my time as manager at this setting I took it from Ofsted satisfactory to outstanding. During this period I also studied for and gained my foundation degree in Early Years & Childcare, something that after being away from formal education for 30 years and a single mum I am intensely proud of.
As the company expanded I was promoted to an Area Manager role. I enjoyed overseeing all aspects and I led 7 nurseries through The Surrey Quality Improvement Award as lead practitioner.
Having been made redundant when this small chain was bought I returned to a nursery as Nursery Manager and then as Operations Director for a large independent nursery with its own forest school and after school club. When the dreaded redundancy came again when this too was bought out, I sought out the challenge of going back to a role with Bright Horizons where making a difference for children was paramount. I have now been at Bright Horizons 3 years and have in that time been involved with delivering quality in a large number of settings and more recently as a supporting manager.
I look forward to meeting you all even from behind a mask and leading the nursery to ensure all your children have the opportunities to develop and grow to the best of their ability.
Since leaving school and going to college to study for my Level 2 and 3 in Childcare I have become so passionate about caring and supporting children’s development.
I started at Bright Horizons in October 2018, where I became a nursery nurse. Over the years, I have developed within my roles and have been a Deputy Manager for Caterham Burntwood Lane since January 2020.
Through my experience of working through various roles, I have gained knowledge throughout all ages groups and thrive to support children in all areas of their development.
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.
