A place to grow

Our lovely and welcoming day nursery in Kingston has a warm feeling as soon as you walk in. We're based on Richmond Road in a great location which is within walking distance to the River Thames and Kingston town centre.

We have a very established team who previously worked together in the old setting on Lower Kings Road and moved to the newly refurbished Richmond Road setting in September 2017.

The nursery is convenient for commuters; only a five-minute walk from Kingston town centre, rail station and bus station. Parents can use our forecourt for drop-off and collection.

Our bright, spacious, baby and toddler rooms are located on the first floor, we have 2 nursery class rooms on the ground floor and 2 Preschool rooms in the basement which lead straight out on to the garden. All children have access to our beautiful adventure garden throughout the day. As part of the Bright Horizons family, we pride ourselves on providing safe, exciting and enjoyable nurseries where children thrive as they learn.

We will be delighted to welcome you to Kingston Day Nursery & Preschool. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time that suits you.

Lytisha Gill

Lytisha started her journey at Kingston Day Nursery over 5 years ago when she joined a preschool room. She quickly stepped into a Room Leader role and successfully supported children who were getting ready for school. As Lytisha gained more experience and confidence, in her role she started supporting management team as a Third in Charge. Over the years, Lytisha has built great relationships with our families and staff and has been taking more responsibilities within the nursery. She also regularly deepened her knowledge of early years education at various training courses which helped her progress to a Deputy role.

Lytisha holds CACHE Level 3 Diploma Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce. Lytisha’s time is balanced between managing the nursery and spending time with the children, which is one of her real passions. She likes to research in her own time and brings fresh ideas that are stimulating and educational, which benefits the children in our care.

RebeccaMay Thornby

I have been at Kingston day nursery for 5 years and progressed through the nursery from Nursery nurse to Deputy manager. I have a foundation degree in Early years (level 5).

I have worked in all age groups but my speciality is under 2s as this is the age group I have worked with the most while being at the nursery. It's amazing to watching the children develop and grow throughout the nursery through a safe and stimulating environment, during my time at Kingston I have created relationships with all parents and staff.

I keep my knowledge up to date by researching current information and then imbed this into the nursery to ensure my team have sound knowledge.

Candy Floss

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.
