Our free flow, fully resourced toddler and preschool rooms are staffed with an experienced and qualified team who encourage individual growth and development. Our baby room is well equipped with its own milk kitchen and direct access to our garden. The generous outdoor space can be accessed all day by the children and in all weathers, with grassed areas and all weather safety tarmac.
Our newly created mud kitchen offers children a sensory experience they all enjoy.

I joined Bright Horizons and The Playhouse Nursery as a relief member of staff in 2013 following my graduation from my BA Honours Early Childhood Studies Degree where I achieved an Upper Second Class Honours.
In 2014, I was promoted to the Baby Room leader, supervising one member of staff and approximately 10 children. Then almost 18 months later I was entrusted with supervising a larger room of children and more staff. This experience offered me the opportunity of promotion to Deputy Manager before moving into the Nursery Manager position.
I love working with children, but especially babies because I have always had a very caring nature and I enjoy knowing that I am making a difference as they develop.
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.
