A place to grow

Opened in December 2015 in the heart of Muswell Hill we offer every child a rich and stimulating nursery experience while working in close partnership with parents. With state of the art resources and a spacious, bright open plan environment, a diverse range of inclusive classes and trips are included which you and your child can attend regardless of whether they take place on days when your child attends or not. We also use an industry leading online learning journey called Tapestry with which we can work even more closely with you to nurture your child's development and confidence at all levels.

Before starting with us, there will be an opportunity for your child to settle thoroughly and to discuss his/her individual needs. We operate an inclusive approach whereby all families and children are welcome.

Once you have gone on our waiting list we offer a fantastic opportunity for you to get to know the staff and for your child to interact with them and the other children. Simply ask a member of management to book you a Stay & Play session and you can bring your child into the nursery and stay with them for an hour in the room they would be joining. You can enjoy as many of these sessions as you wish leading unto your start date, and they are completely free.

An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.

We looking forward to meeting you!

Meet the Team

Musewell Hill Nursery Manager

Chantelle Gudgeon

I have been a Nursery Manager since 2011, but my journey with Bright Horizons started in 2018 when I joined the team at our Muswell Hill Day Nursery and Preschool.

I’ve always had a passion for childcare, since becoming qualified at the age of 17 through a BTEC National Diploma in Early Years Education. I love nothing more than watching children develop and grow, and take pride in providing them with the very best care and education.

I have a team of 32 staff at this Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated nursery, who bring a huge wealth of skills and experience to the setting. I’m very much looking forward to welcoming you and your little one to Muswell Hill.

Muswell Hill Deputy Manager

Siobhan Boland

I joined Magic Day Nurseries - now part of the Bright Horizons family, in 2012 at the Finchley nursery. I started at Muswell Hill in November 2015 as a Room Leader when the nursery first opened, and quickly progressed to Deputy Manager. In August 2018 we were delighted to obtain an Outstanding rating and I was active in facilitating this as part of my new role.

In November 2018 we were acquired by Bright Horizons and it has been a pleasure to watch Muswell Hill continue grow from strength to strength. I’m very excited about our future plans here and would love to share them with you.

I am currently the nursery SENCO and provide a wealth of support to children with special educational needs. I am passionate about watching our children grow throughout their nursery journeys, helping to develop their confidence and skills through learning.

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.
