A place to grow

Located in the Stratford Office Village on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, our Stony Stratford day nursery offer premium quality childcare for children age 3 months to 5 years.

Our nursery & preschool is situated in a secure one-level building on a quiet estate. All of our rooms are equipped with Community Play Furniture and equipment and high-specification ICT equipment. Each room has an outdoor area, to free flow and access at their own pace.

Our amazing adventure gardens have been carefully designed to include fantastic facilities that encourage the imaginations of children while supporting their all-round development. We have 2 exciting new gardens including a tipi, up and under bridge, sand pit, separate baby garden and much more. While the children adapt to their new environment, we offer parents the use of our parent room where you can relax while your child settles in.

An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.

Our highly experienced and dedicated staff team undergo regular training to keep their skills up-to-date with the latest innovations in childcare practice. Many of our staff members have been at Stony Stratford Day Nursery and Preschool for over 10 years with our very own Highly Experienced nursery Chef.

The nursery is situated in the catchment areas for Greenleys First School, Russell Street First School and Wyvern First School. Languages spoken at the nursery are Spanish, Italian, Polish, Hindi and Gujarati.

Umar Patel Nursery Manager Stony Stratford

Uma Patel

I have been working in childcare for over 15 years and have enjoyed every moment of it. When I completed my BA Honours in Early Childhood Studies I progressed in to a Nursery Manager role in 2015. Since my progression, I have been very fortunate to become a part of Bright Horizons family in 2017 and shortly after I was able to work across multiple sites alongside having my very own Nursery. I continue to follow my passion in providing the best experience and opportunities to children and developing strong relationships with families. 

Stony Stratford Deputy April Gillett

April Gillett

I have been lucky enough to have worked in child care for 10 years; starting out at a private independent nursery where I completed an early year’s apprenticeship.

I then moved on to a deputy role in a preschool setting connected to a local school in Warwickshire  - this was a great opportunity for me to develop on a professional level, and build also build a great foundation of knowledge to provide preschool education.

Due to family life I was able to work in a variety of nursery settings before settling at Stony Stratford. I started at Asquith Heathrow as third in charge and when the opportunity arose for the deputy role at Stony Stratford I knew the job was for me.

I wanted to continue my professional development, sharing all my knowledge and experience with the staff, children and families that we welcome here. I wouldn’t change this job for the world.

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.
