A caring and enriching nursery in Twickenham

Welcome to Oak Lane Day Nursery and Preschool, which is rated Good by Ofsted. Located in Twickenham, our friendly and experienced staff are dedicated to the care and education of children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Dedicated Rooms for All Ages

In our comforting baby room, we follow babies' individual routines from home as closely as possible, making the transition from home to nursery easy and reassuring. Your little one will also be able to use our separate sleep room, so they can nap peacefully.

Younger toddlers have two rooms in our Acorn unit, allowing them to freeflow and enjoy open-ended play based on their own interests.

Older toddlers love their room, which has been specially designed to inspire their curiosities and support their independence.

Preschoolers have a beautiful, spacious room where activities are planned with our Ready for School Programme to help them develop the skills and confidence to be ready to take their next steps.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

Learning and Playing Outdoors

Each of our classrooms benefits from freeflow access to our beautiful gardens, allowing your little one to enjoy exploring outside at their own pace.

With age-specific areas and a planting area, your child will have fun and make exciting discoveries with activities and resources to aid their individual development.

Meet the Team

Oak Lane Day Nursery and Preschool Manager

Sandra Peacock

I gained my NNEB in 1998 and started working for Bright Horizons in 2001 as a Nursery Nurse. Since then I have worked in a number of different settings throughout London and the South East, and have gained lots of valuable experience. I became Nursery Manager of Oak Lane January 2017, and am very proud to lead the team to provide care and education for children in such a new and well resourced setting.

I pride myself on establishing strong partnerships with parents to ensure the nursery meets their needs and is reflective of our local community. It is a privilege to be able to work with our future generation and I am passionate about providing as many opportunities for our children to be the prime educators in their own learning.

Oak Lane Deputy Nursery Manager

Jessie Thaker

I started out my career over 20 years ago as a qualified Nursery Nurse. I have a broad range of experience having worked within a variety of settings from working with children in hospitals and care homes to working in a Sure Start centre. This has given me the opportunity to focus on child development and individual care at a much deeper level as well as focus on child education.

My passion for child development and education grew, which led me to become a Nursery Nurse within a private nursery school. I enjoyed the challenges, rewards and opportunities for growth. I have since been working within a nursery and preschool setting, developing experiences and my passion to work with children. Over the years, I worked my way up to Deputy Manager, working in a community and client based nursery in this position. I am very committed to my role and love the fact that each day brings something new.

I started my career in childcare in 2001 gaining an NVQ Level 3 in childcare at West Thames College. I worked in a preschool at a local primary school for 11 years and then joined Bright Horizons in 2013. In 2019 I joined Oak Lane as the Room Leader in the Preschool room, joining an amazing team.

I take pride in helping and encouraging the children grow in confidence and independence ready for their school life journey

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.
