A place to grow

Our preschool nursery is a fun place for children to grow and learn. We thrive to provide the best childcare and education for all our children and provide a safe, caring and fun environment to develop the children. 


 

We’re based in a converted house conveniently situated for the Bakerloo and Metropolitan Tube lines and are located within the catchment of the Mount Stewart Infant School. We hold a 5 star EHO Food Hygiene rating. We also have strong links with Private Schools in and around the surrounding areas. As part of the Asquith family, we pride ourselves on providing safe, exciting and enjoyable nurseries where children thrive as they learn. 


Our environments are set up to meet the high-quality care and education for the children which will help the children with the requirements for the assessments. We have recently invested £70k in refurbishing our nursery which has created a wonderful day care environment that is innovative, stimulating, and inspiring for children and staff alike. 


We have a beautiful large garden for outdoor discovery with a separate under twos grass area to ensure babies can play safely. We put down mats for babies who are not walking. The children enjoy having fun playing with educational games and socialising with their friends. Each area has a climbing frame and for older children we have a garden project area for nature exploration and planting. Children are very creative at Kenton Day Nursery and Preschool, they like to explore their imagination skills and create their own fun and exciting areas. 


 Come and visit us to experience the warm atmosphere, our fantastic facilities, and our dedicated staff team. Our excellent quality service offers up to eights weeks settling in sessions where the journey begins for your child and yourself. We will allocate a key person for your child where they will gain a positive relationship and monitor your child’s development and achievements in the nursery. We understand that choosing a nursery can be a hard decision and you will be offered the opportunity to book a personal show round and stay and play session where you and your child can join in nursery activities with other children and meet other parents and staff.

Name of person

Cathey Peart

I joined Kenton pre-school and day nursery in September 2017 as nursery manager. I am passionate about working with children and their families and have worked in this field for the last 20 years in a variety of roles in the private and public sector including intensive family support and Acting Head teacher of an inclusive maintained Nursery School with complex needs placements. I hold a NVQ3 in Children’s Learning Care and Development and am currently studying for my Master of Arts in Integrated working with Children and Families in the Early Years. I am fascinated by how we construct meaning from our experiences and how we use our early education environment to support the children in our care to make excellent progress in their learning and development. We aim to provide a stimulating, engaging and nurturing place for your child to explore their curiosity about the world and I look forward to talking with 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.
