A place to grow

Our bright purpose-built Nottingham children's nursery is situated within the David Lloyd club on Aspley lane and offers childcare for children aged from three months up to five years of age. 

Being located in the David Lloyd club the children are able to utilise and benefit from the soft play area, tennis courts and swimming lessons which all the children enjoy. The nursery provides childcare in Nottingham on weekdays (Monday to Friday) from 7.30am - 6.00pm and on-site car parking is available. 

We are situated between two main hospitals, close to local amenities and on a major bus and tram route. We have a large outdoor area that includes age-appropriate spaces for the children to enjoy and explore which enables the staff to use the outdoor area to extend the children's knowledge and development. 

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

We pride ourselves on providing safe, exciting and enjoyable nurseries where children thrive as they learn. Nottingham Day Nursery children gain valuable life skills that they can take with them for the future. We will be delighted to welcome you to Nottingham day nursery. 

Our link with David Lloyd Nottingham health club entitles parents to pre & post-natal consultations with a qualified Pre & Post Natal fitness trainer. All of our parents who are registered with Asquith Nottingham are entitled to a David Lloyd Pre & Post Natal consultation which will support with fitness & wellbeing post pregnancy. 

Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

Sarah Oswald, Nursery Manager at Nottingham Day Nursery

Sarah Oswald

I have worked in and managed settings within the childcare sector both in the UK and overseas for over 15 years and I am passionate about the industry which I work in.  One of the roles which I really enjoyed was driving quality improvement for nurseries who needed extra support and I feel that this role alongside all of my previous experience has enabled me to be the strong manager which I am today.    

This passion is what drives me to strive for the very best outcomes for children, reaching for outstanding care and education for all who attend our nursery.  I believe it is my responsibility to ensure that every family, child and staff member loves the nursery which they attend and that we create a family feel where everyone feels welcome, included and that we always have the children at the forefront of everything we do.  

I am a hands on manager who enjoys spending time with the children and leading, motivating and inspiring my team.  I believe in parents as partners and that it is all of our responsibilities to ensure that our children are given the very best start in life.

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.
