Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Bright Horizons' nursery in Oxford Business Park is located close to the M40 and Eastern Bypass and is ideally suited for parents who work locally or live in the surrounding area.

The purpose-built nursery boasts eight individual rooms, which are bright, spacious, highly resourced and are tailored to specific age groups. Our amazing, spacious outdoor environment consists of four outdoor play areas with free flow access from all ground rooms. The car park allows for easy and safe drop off and collection of the children. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef, catering for all dietary requirements. A unique Ready for School Programme including Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians prepares children for their transition to school.

Our fees include all meals and snacks, nappies, nappy cream, bottles and formula baby milk as appropriate.

Nutrition

Our excellent nutritionally balanced menu is changed regularly to encourage a varied diet and is approved by the Childrens Food Trust. Here is an example of a typical menu.

Helen Gorst

I have been working in childcare settings for 15 years and have recently joined Bright Horizons.  After gaining my BTEC national diploma in childhood studies I have worked with children aged 0-11 in a variety of settings, including nurseries, playgroups and after school clubs, I began as a practitioner and have worked my way up to senior roles gaining lots of important experiences and skills along the way.  I have always enjoyed working within early years and find it very rewarding as you watch a child develop, learn and achieve new skills.

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!
