Our Outstanding Day Nursery and Preschool in Maidstone is purpose-built for every age and stage of your child’s development, from 3 months to 5 years.

Outdoor Adventures

Age-appropriate outdoor areas and activities will keep your little one enjoying our all-weather, covered garden to ensure they get their daily dose of fresh air, even if it is raining. 

Maidstone Turkey Mill Day Nursery and Preschool provides freeflow access from each age-appropriate room to encourage independent exploration of the great outdoors.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your child will get the very best start with our Bright Beginnings Curriculum. Designed by our Early Years specialists, the enriching curriculum focuses on children’s wellbeing as the foundation to successful learning.

Rated Ofsted Outstanding, build on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum through a combination of exciting activities that nurture your child and help them to develop skills for school and beyond.

Getting Ready for School

Your child will be supported to be confident in reading, writing, maths and art, and so much more to encourage a happy and healthy learning experience.

We encourage role play and ‘loose parts play’ so your little one will have many opportunities to use their imagination and senses to explore, discover and develop their independence.

Furthermore, our practitioners have completed Helicopter Stories Training which works to bring stories to life so your preschooler will be inspired to act out stories of their own.

All-Inclusive Care

We encourage a varied diet with fresh, seasonal hot and cold meals prepared by our on-site chef to inspire your child’s interest in healthy food.

You can look forward to stress-free mornings as necessities such as snacks, wipes, creams, formula, and nappies are also included in your child’s care.

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.
