A place to grow

Bright Horizons Wooldale Nursery and Preschool is located on the Caroline Chisholm School site. There is convenient parking close to the nursery which allows safe drop off and collection of the children. Rated 'Outstanding' in our recent Ofsted visit, we offer a warm welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients, all prepared on site.

Our nursery has 3 spacious rooms and great outdoor space, which the children access on a daily basis. We have our own unique Ready for School Programme including Growing Readers, Writers, and Mathematicians preparing children for their transition to school.

We run a Before and After School club located on the School site. Both breakfast and tea are provided and included in the fees. Children can also attend our holiday club which runs throughout the year during school holidays and for an extra fee, you can drop your child off at 7:30am.

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.
