Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries

Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries, based in Twickenham, was established to provide childcare facilities and education which would exceed the expectations of even the most discerning of parents. Now Oftsed-rated ‘Outstanding’, they represent a truly exceptional option for local childcare in the community.

Catering for children aged between 3 months to 5 years, the nursery was purposely converted to the highest possible standard with the children in mind. It benefits from large, very bright and colourful classrooms, separate sleep rooms and a unique sensory studio!

Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries recognises the need for total flexibility, and is able to offer this in their opening hours and also in the services they offer.

When a child starts at Bright Beginnings, there is a comprehensive settling in procedure that helps the children (and parents!) make the transition. It is important for everyone concerned that they are happy and settle as soon as possible. Some children feel comfortable straight away, whilst others take longer to get used to their new environment.

Good nutrition is considered of utmost importance at Bright Beginnings, since it is so important for young children if they are to grow and develop. The nursery ensures that not only are they providing children with meals, snacks, and drinks to meet their nutritional requirements, but also encouraging good food habits. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are offered and midmorning and afternoon snacks are provided.

Altogether, attention to detail and commitment to the best possible care makes Bright Beginnings a wonderful community nursery in the heart of Twickenham.

Bright Beginnings offers outstanding childcare for little ones from three months, to five years in the pre-school.


Baby rooms cater for children from the age of 3 months until they are confidently mobile. Once they are actively up and about with confidence and ready to move on, Tweenies would be their next stop.


The Toddler Room accommodates two and rising 3 year olds in two groups, the Red group and the Yellow group. This allows the nursery to provide activities which are designed specifically at the developmental stage each group, rather than a general activity, which would leave some children bored, and others out of their depth.


Finally, children will enter the pre-school group either on joining the nursery or having moved up from Toddlers. The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is followed by all of the children and extension activities are offered in all areas of the curriculum to ensure that they are able to achieve their full potential.

We really appreciate the time and effort spent caring for [our one year old], understanding her individual needs and adapting to her routine. Emily has thrived under the watchful eye of her key worker and the rest of the team and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the nursery.
