An 'Outstanding' nursery in Royal Tunbridge Wells

Our nursery is located in the St John’s area of Royal Tunbridge Wells. 

We are based a short walk away from both mainline stations of Royal Tunbridge Wells and High Brooms and very near to the bus stops which operate all the main routes. We are rated Outstanding by Ofsted and our nursery has five light and airy rooms where the children can explore and develop in age appropriate rooms and we offer a long standing team, some of which have been with us since we opened in 2005. 

 We have our own children’s committee who help us with decision making of what the children would like at the nursery. All our food is prepared fresh on site by Anna our chef who has fourteen years of preparing nursery food.

 We enhance the children’s development with our Growing programmes, supporting them in their journey to school.

Teddies Tunbridge Wells Nursery and Preschool Manager

Becky Bushell

I have been qualified since 2002 with a BTEC National diploma in Early Years and in 2008 I finished my Foundation Degree in Early Years.

I have been working at Tunbridge Wells since May 2009 where I joined as a Head of Unit. In April 2010 I took on the role as Deputy Manager and I am now Nursery Manager.

I have always love working with children and forming relationships with them and their families. I have found that having my own children has really helped me relate to the families within the nursery and helping them solve any issues they may have.

I am married and have 3 children called Amelia, Logan and Theo.

I have worked at the nursery since 2005 and have progressed from Nursery Nurse to acting Deputy in my time here. I have a big passion for working with babies and this is my area of expertise. I like to offer help and support to all the families in the care of the nursery. I have a NNEB qualification which I completed in 2001.

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!
