A place to grow

Our Moortown children's day nursery to the north of Leeds is a friendly and exciting environment that children will enjoy. The children learn and develop while enjoying the activities we provide. There are four play rooms that provide a stimulating environment which encourages the child's inbuilt curiosity while helping them discover that learning is fun. The low-level furniture allows the children unrestricted access to our wide range of resources and activities, and the play rooms are structured in such a way as to promote each child's independence, along with their decision-making and problem-solving skills. 

Once a family registers with us, we work closely with them to structure their child's bespoke settling-in session. Each child is allotted a key person to ensure consistency throughout this process. Each child’s key person builds strong bonds with their key children, following their individual care routines and providing for their holistic needs. This approach enables us to ensure every child's learning and development is focused on preparation for life beyond nursery. 

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage programme so that all the activities provided meet children's developmental age and stage targets through activities geared to their interests. 

There are nine primary schools, including faith schools, within a mile of the nursery. The nursery also provides support to children with special needs and liaises with external agencies to ensure appropriate support is given. 

 We will be delighted to welcome you to the nursery. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

Rachel Finan

My name is Rachel Finan and I am the Manager at Bright Horizons Moortown. I have worked here at Moortown since September 2019, however, I have previously worked for Bright Horizons before.

I am a qualified Early Years Teacher and have previous experience managing a Local Authority setting, as well as setting up a Private Day Nursery. I have over 15 Years experience in Early Years, and I won the ‘Early Years Professional of the Year’ award in 2013 when previously working for Bright Horizons.

My passion for Early Years comes from watching the children we care for grow and develop in a quality and nurturing Early Years setting.

As a mother myself I understand the Importance of high quality provision. I truly love working with Children and Families; being able to share all the wonderful milestones children achieve on a daily basis!

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.
