A spacious and inviting nursery in Fair Oak

At Bright Horizons Fair Oak Day Nursery and Preschool, rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, your child will love our wide range of activities from yoga to growing vegetables. Each of our four rooms are specifically designed for each age and stage, ensuring children are engaged, stimulated and given the best possible start.

 

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

 

Designed by our Early Years specialists, the enriching Bright Beginnings Curriculum focuses on children’s wellbeing as the foundation to successful learning.

Our practitioners build on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum, through a combination of exciting activities that nurture and inspire your child at their own pace.

 

Getting Ready for School

 

Your little one will love our regular activities like yoga, dressing up, and the fun and popular Boogie Mites sessions, where they learn about the world through music and song

Your child will be supported as a Growing Reader, Writer, Mathematician, Artist and more through our Growing Enhancements. Preschoolers are encouraged to build on this with our Ready For School Programme. Here, your child will start to learn the life skills they need to flourish at school.

 

Outdoor Adventures

 

Your little explorers can enjoy the safety and convenience of separate gardens specifically designed for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. They even learn to grow vegetables in our vegetable patch.

Preschoolers have freeflow access to a large garden to encourage independent outdoor exploration and love our regular minibus trips to visit the library, local garden centre and Marwell. We even venture out to pick our own pumpkins!

Meet the Team

Fair Oak Day Nursery and Preschool Manager

Clare Ashton

I am very passionate and committed to providing outstanding care and learning opportunities for all the children in a fun, safe and stimulating environment where we follow the children's interests so they can learn, explore and develop to their full potential.

I joined Bright Horizons formerly known as Yellow Dot in 2002 as a Senior Nursery Nurse and was promoted to Room Manager, then Deputy. I then worked across the group in a support function. I was supported by Yellow Dot to study for my Early Years Degree in Childhood Studies. Most recently, I also took the role of leading music across all Nurseries delivering music to the children and team, as I do love to sing and dance! My own children were cared for by Yellow Dot, so I benefit from having the parents' perspective too.

Fair Oak Day Nursery and Preschool Deputy Manager

Alice Groves

I started at Bright Horizons formerly known as Yellow Dot in 2014 as a newly qualified Level 3 Nursery Nurse after leaving college. I worked in the Baby Room as a nursery nurse and progressed to be the Senior Nursery Nurse in there. I then took on a new challenge and moved to Kindergarten (Preschool) to become the Room Manager. After a few years in this role, I stepped up and became the Deputy of the Nursery as well as continuing my role as Kindergarten Room Leader. I enjoy coming to work each day, seeing the children’s development and how they grow into their own individual personalities before they go off to school.

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.
