Aminat Adegoke

I have being working with children for over 9 years. I worked as a private nanny caring for 3 children between the ages of 2 and 6 years for six year. I enjoy supporting children in reaching their full potential through range of stimulating and challenging activities that are of interest to individual children including those with Special educational needs. I am a fan of sustained shared thinking which enables children and adult to work together as a team when planning for children’s learning and development.

I have Level 3 in Children and young people workforce, Level 4 in early years and Education and BA (Hons)  in Leadership and Education in Early years from Kingston University London.

I enjoy working in partnership with parents from all background in other to support children’s development. I have had the opportunities to work alongside several leaders within the early years and Bright Horizons which has enhances my practice in caring for children and supporting staff at providing excellence provision for all the children in our care.

I have been in the Childcare industry since 2002 and have a level 3 in childcare along with a level 5 in Leadership for the Children and Young People’s Workforce - Early Years (Advanced Practice). I love to see children in a safe and secure environment where they have opportunities to explore, to express and use their imagination through play. Along with them challenging themselves to embrace their own individual learning and development, so that each little one flourishes and grows to the best that they can be. I am very passionate in sharing my wealth experience to support my team. To see them grow to their full potential thus giving them the skill set to deliver and maintain excellence in their work ethic to create a high quality learning environment that we can all be proud of.

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!
