A place to grow

Bright Horizons Milton Park cares for children from 3 months to 5 years of age, on a full time or part time basis. 

Open from 7.30am-6.00pm the nursery is fully inclusive providing hot healthy meals cooked on site, nappies, wipes, formula for babies and creams such as nappy and sun cream. The purpose-built nursery boasts bright, spacious, highly resourced rooms which are tailored to specific age groups. Our spacious outdoor environment offers all children an opportunity to extend their learning outdoors in all weathers. The car park allows for easy and safe drop off and collection of the children. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef, catering for all dietary requirements. A unique Ready for School Programme including Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians prepares children for their transition to school. 

Our unique Healthy Hearts and Minds activities provide inspirational and engaging learning experiences using the innovative and well established Boogie Mites and myHappymind programmes.


The nursery is located just off the A34 on Milton Business Park making it an ideal location for those working on or living nearby the park. .

Milton Park Day Nursery and Preschool Manager

Stephanie Matthews

I joined Milton Park in 2010 as a nursery nurse, some years later it is a huge achievement to say I am the Nursery Manager at Milton Park! I have seen the nursery grow and many children come as babies and leave ready for school! I have a strong passion for childcare and remember from when I was little it was all I wanted to do! I love every aspect of caring and providing care and education for the children, it is so wonderful and rewarding to see the children grow and develop new skills and the self-confidence to be who they want to be!

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.
