AN INSPIRING NURSERY IN SEVENOAKS

You and your child will love our nursery in Sevenoaks, which provides exceptional care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

In line with the Early Years curriculum, we practice Growing Enhancements – a programme unique to Bright Horizons focusing on reading, writing and mathematics, as well as creative skills, to support your child in their transition from nursery 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.

To support your child’s natural curiosity for the outside world, Sevenoaks nursery has a large garden. It is split into two age-specific sections, so your little one feels comfortable in their outdoor play. Our garden is refurbished every three years to keep it as safe and exciting as possible. We also take children on walks to the local parks, where we host our sports days, and further afield on excursions to Knole Park.

We have strong links with local schools in the community, most notably Riverhead Infants School. Children have also been on educational visits to the train station and fire station, giving them the opportunity to learn from their local community.

Sevenoaks day nursery’s efforts to deliver exceptional care and education have been recognised by Ofsted, who have rated us Good in their latest inspection, as well as on Google reviews, where we have a 5/5 star rating (as of December 2019).

We would love to meet you and your little one, so book a visit today and we will show you everything our nursery has to offer during your own personal tour.

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.
