Bright Horizons' Waterways nursery in Oxford is located on the Waterways Housing development, off Elizabeth Jennings Way in Summertown. We offer care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years.
Purpose-built in 2007, our nursery boasts bicycle park and buggy storage facilities. The rooms are spacious and our fantastic large outdoor environment with a nature garden, growing area and age appropriate equipment is ideal for all children to learn and develop. Convenient parent parking at the nursery allows for safe drop off and pick up times.
Our highly qualified and longstanding staff team are dedicated to providing exceptional care and education for all children. We were awarded 'Good' at our most recent Ofsted inspection. A unique Ready for School Programme including Growing Readers, Writers, Athletes and Mathematicians prepares children at our nursery for their transition to school.
Our unique Healthy Hearts and Minds activities provide inspirational and engaging learning experiences using the innovative and well established Boogie Mites and myHappymind programmes.
An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.
Fees include all meals and snacks, branded nappies, cream, bottles and formula baby milk as appropriate. Excellent nutritionally balanced menus are freshly prepared on site by our Chef catering for all dietary requirements.

I have been working in childcare for 13 year and with Bright Horizons for the past 8 years. I have a level 3 NVQ in Childcare and Level 3 NVQ in management. I enjoy and feel touched when I see the children grow with confidence knowing I had a part in their development.
I have been with Bright Horizons for 16 years. Previous to this I have worked as a Au pair and Nanny. I came to Bright Horizons as a Bank staff and have worked my way up in positions. I have Level 3 in Childcare and Level 5 in Management. My passion is to see the children learn and grow in all that they do.
I have managed 3 different Bright Horizons settings in the Oxfordshire area and supported many others within our company and always strive to provide the best childcare.
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.
