A Place to Grow

Previously Zoom Nursery Brockley, this beautiful setting joined the Bright Horizons family in 2018. We’ve built upon our great reputation locally to deliver some of the best childcare in the area, having looked after hundreds of children since we opened in 2015.

We provide exceptional childcare for babies, toddlers and children aged 3 months to 5 years. All age groups benefit from our extensive Growing Enhancements programmes to provide learning and development in fields such as Reading, Writing, Maths, Sports, Science, IT and Art.  

All of our rooms are extremely well-equipped, featuring the latest in early years and educational equipment. We also have outdoor spaces for all ages which are well-resourced and provide opportunities for learning outside.

Our nursery is extremely secure and benefits from security systems upon entry, providing a safe environment for your child.

We’re well-placed for local commuter routes by train and bus and provide some of the most flexible start and finish times in the area. This gives our parents the peace of mind that we can accommodate their working patterns.

The building itself contains many period features for that “home from home” feeling. It’s a bright, airy and engaging space which truly facilitates the best in early years care. We pride ourselves on our settling in sessions and can put together a plan for you and your family to ensure your child is fully settled in advance of them starting with us.

Our staff team are qualified to a variety of levels, some having been with the nursery for a number of years and some who are starting out in their childcare careers. We have found that this mix of ages and genders within the team gives a great benefit to our children’s confidence and social development.

Get in touch with us today to come and see the nursery for yourself, we would love to welcome you with some stay and play sessions so you can truly experience Bright Horizons Brockley with your child.

Bright Horizons Brockley Day Nursery and Preschool Manager

Richard Abery

 I have worked in childcare for 20 years and I will soon be celebrating my 11th year with Bright Horizons. 

I started out at Teddies, West Dulwich as a Deputy Manager and after 2 years I started my Management journey at Mount Carmel Day Nursery and Preschool. After 2 years and a successful Ofsted inspection I moved to St Johns Wood, once a full staff team was recruited and a strong senior team was in place, I was able to support new mangers and new acquisitions such as Active Learning and My Nursery. The My Nursery acquisition turned in to a permanent position for me and after 18 months and 'Good' Ofsted inspections at both the Nursery and the Preschool I decided I wanted more of a Field Role. I was successful in my application to join a London based Region with my first stop being back at St Johns Wood as Maternity Cover. This placement lasted a year and also involved an Ofsted inspection, ending in a Good. I was supporting various nurseries after this time until being based at Bright Horizons West Hampstead as maternity cover. 

I joined the team at Brockley in September 2019 and look forward to my journey here. 


Chloe deputy manager brockley

Chloe Figgins

Hello my name is Chloe and I started working at Bright Horizons in 2016. Whilst undertaking my degree in Education and Early years I always knew I wanted to work with Pre-school aged children.

I started as the lead in Pre-school and then went on to become the third in charge and then Deputy in 2019, also taking on the SENCO role. I thrive on ensuring quality is present within all rooms, allowing children to have a stimulating environment which is fun and exciting for them throughout the day.

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.
