Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Bright Horizons' nursery in Timperley, Cheshire (formally kidsunlimited Timperley) is a purpose-built day nursery on Deansgate Lane which was recently redecorated in late 2015.

The highly qualified team helped the nursery to secure a ‘good’ rating in the latest Ofsted inspection. The nursery boasts excellent facilities that will enable children to engage in a broad range of activities; from music, to yoga and other physical activity.

All inclusive fees including all meals and snacks, nappies, nappy cream, bottles and baby formula. Children in the nursery are well prepared to transition to school with our Ready for School Programme which includes Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians.

A role play area is fully furnished with home corner resources and items to enhance our children’s imagination and role play skills. The ICT area allows children to spend time developing their knowledge and understanding of ICT using simple programmes and games.

Drop off and picks ups are as safe as possible with convenient parent parking at the nursery, along with disabled access. We hold a 5 star kitchen food hygiene rating. Families also benefit from our parent forums to support with care, learning and development of the children.

We also offer Stay and Play sessions. Contact us for more details.

Janette Schenk

I have been working in childcare for 25 years and have gained a Level 4 qualification in Childcare, Learning and Education. My experience has mainly been in nursery settings but I have also been a nanny. I have been a Nursery Manager at Timperley Day Nursery since March 2013. My career goal has always been to work with children and even as a young teenager I babysat for friends and family. I now enjoy training and supporting others; inspiring them to reach their full potential and developing their passion for their career in childcare, ensuring that the care, learning and development in the nursery is maintained to a high standard.

Emma Dunsmore

I have been working for Bright Horizons for four years now! In the four years I have ticked off lots of things I have wanted to achieve during my career. The company has supported me all the way through my professional development. I began my journey as a Room Supervisor in the preschool room and during that time I was completing a BA Honours Degree in Early Childhood Studies. My nursery manager was very experienced and she supported me in gaining the qualifications I desired. I was proud to gain a 2:1 in my degree! After lots of hard work, the results finally shone. My manager then encouraged me to take on the Early Years Teacher Status. The company allowed me the opportunity to attend regular training and development days. 

After achieving the EYTS I was then asked to help other nurseries where they needed some support in implementing good practice and improving areas of leadership. I felt I was really able to guide and mentor others, just what my qualifications enabled me to do. I felt I really needed this challenge and that’s when my Regional Manager gave me this opportunity to develop and grow professionally which has really paid off as I am now a Deputy Manager in a wonderful nursery. Without the nursery support I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I wanted too and for that I will be forever grateful.  

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!
