“The Creation Station has really helped to develop Owens skills. He is a lot more confident in what he creates and it’s given us more ideas of things to use, thank you very much, Owen and I love coming" Owens Daddy!
Using art, craft music & movement…and a little bit of magic, the children (and parents/carers!) are inspired to create their own journey of discovery. The mark making, funky objects and learning that develops is shared and enjoyed with the other children and adults. See some of our activities on our site.

We provide a safe world for children with abundant opportunities for adventure and a curriculum that helps children discover their potential. Through play and language, a caring staff team, and friendships that begin in infancy, children who come to Bright Horizons centres build a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning.
Our early care and education centres are for children from 3 months to 5 years of age and located across the UK. Come and see how we put our philosophy into practice.
MOVE combines therapy and education in a programme which helps children work towards goals that they really want to achieve, which can range from learning to hold their head up by themselves to learning the skills needed to play football with their friends using a pacer. MOVE is unique in that no child is too disabled to use it and works with the child’s parents, teachers and therapists to teach them skills which are then practised in everyday life, enabling parents to be involved in key decision making and instrumental in their child’s development.
Visit our website or call us on 020 7407 5344 to find out more information, speak to a specialist or a parent of a child already on the programme or to visit a school using MOVE.
