A place to grow

Maidstone Day Nursery and Preschool (formerly known as Teddies Nursery) is situated close to Maidstone West station with perfect links into London and bus routes into the town centre.

We have close relationships with all of the local Primary and Secondary schools and offer a popular after school club. 07:30 -18:30 opening hours means the nursery is absolutely ideal for working or commuting parents.

The nursery management team are long serving members of the Bright Horizons family with the Manager, Lisa supporting our staff and children since 2002. The staff team are warm, friendly and passionate about the care and development of all children and families - you can feel their enthusiasm within the setting and in each individual room. An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.

ABIOLA DANIELS Bright Horizons Chelsea Nursery Manager

Abiola Daniels

I started my career in childcare as a work experience student, I have been in childcare industry for over 12 years and now nursery manager; this shows my commitment and dedication and willingness to strive for success within the childcare industry. During this time, I have gained many experiences and knowledge.     

During this time in my career, it has been exciting meeting new parents & children, and getting to work with new people. I have always combined working and studying throughout my career.   

I am very organised; I make sure the nursery runs smoothly and effectively to ensure it meets both parents and Ofsted standards. I am very passionate about children's growth and development, making sure they achieve the best.   

I enjoy seeing other staff strive, by helping them to develop in their carers through training and making sure they progress. I believe in hard work, commitment and rewards.

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.
