A place to grow

Bright Horizons Beckenham Nursery and Preschool is led by an established and highly trained team which provides consistently excellent childcare. Located in a beautifully converted cricket pavilion, the nursery offers access to a large outdoor space as well as an enclosed play area for children to enjoy. 


 We offer extra curriculum activities, we have Tot Stars join us twice a week to do tennis and football with our preschool children and some of the older toddlers join in too. We have an onsite chef who prepares and cooks all food fresh within the nursery; she caters for all children's dietary needs and changes our menu to fit in with any additional celebrations such as World Book Day and Chinese New Year. 


We have a car park which is located next to New Beckenham train station, managed by HSBC and a permit costs £50 a year. We are a short walk from the train station making it easy to drop your child off and make the train into central London.

Nathalie Zafirkovska

I started my childcare career 9 years ago as a housekeeper at this very nursery, New Beckenham. The management at the time quickly noticed my passion and genuine connection with children. I was offered the opportunity to complete my childcare qualifications and my journey in Early Years education began.

I hold a Level 4 Certificate in Early Years Practice from The Open University which I completed in 2013 after my NVQ Level 2 in 2010 and Level 3 in 2012.

At each level of qualification I progressed into more senior roles in the nursery, starting as a Nursery Assistant, Deputy Manager and now becoming the Nursery Manager. I have enjoyed and embraced my career every step of the way.

To me, working with children brings so many rewards but most of all it gives me a chance to see children flourish in their development and become confident and independent learners. I enjoy helping children understand the world around them and I was always fascinated with their natural curiosity, sense of wonder and enthusiasm for play and learning.

As a Nursery Manager I am dedicated to supporting my team to be the best they can be. My goal is to create the right balance of outstanding care for the children and parents and to inspire staff to share Bright Horizons vision and HEART Principles for the best outcomes for children.

Please contact me at the nursery if you’d like to hear more about the work our team are doing to ensure every child gets the very best start in education.

I started my childcare career as a nanny before joining the New Beckenham team as a member of their relief team 7 years ago. Since then I have completed my Level 2 and Level 3 NVQ in childcare and education whilst working at the nursery. I have experience of working in all the rooms and I am now third In charge of the nursery as well as room supervisor of toddlers. 

I enjoy working in childcare as I like to watch all the children in my care grow and develop and whilst finding out the way they like to learn as well as their interests.

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.
