A place to grow

Mount Vernon Day Nursery and Preschool offers care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years. 

We are proud to have a long standing staff team and management who helped us achieve a Good rating in our latest Ofsted inspection. Some of our team have been here for over 20 years. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery and our secure spacious outdoor areas for children gives the children opportunities to extend their learning, alongside a soft play area for children to partake in physical activities. Children in the nursery are well prepared to transition to school with the unique Ready for School Programme which includes Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians. 

To further support this our 3-5 year olds are provided with a uniform of polo shirts and sweat shirts. We have a resources room which is used to support small groups for our children with additional needs and also where we support learning with the staff teams together. The babies and toddlers have separate garden areas to the preschool children, allowing lots of different activities to take place. We also have a family room where parents can spend time while their children are settling into nursery. 

 The nursery is set across 2 buildings - one building for the youngest children and then the school building. Both are in close proximity and the children transition between the 2 buildings extremely well. We provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. We also have a library in our school building where we follow a reading scheme to encourage the childrens love of literacy.

Meet the Team

Mount Vernon Day Nursery and Preschool Manager

Tracy Berry

I started my childcare career over 20 years ago working as a nanny, a Nursery Nurse and all leadership positions before working my way up to be a Regional Manager.

In 2016 I started my own family with my husband Marc and we welcomed Harrison to the world. Since having Harrison my passion for leading my own nursery again was re-ignited and I joined Mount Vernon Nursery in May 2017.

Helping children to develop through their early years was always my passion, seeing the children's expressions of amazement as they learn something new is always a moment to treasure. Helping families through their first years, balancing life and ensuring that we all work in partnership is the key to great success. I am also passionate about the care and education we deliver each day, ensuring the team I am working with have great opportunities to develop and are empowered, being able to ensure each child reaches their full potential.

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.
