Being part of Bright Horizons
Date: 26 Sep 2018
My name is Emma and I am currently Acting Manager at Haslemere Preschool and Day Nursery. I started working for Asquith in 2007 when I joined the nursery as a Nursery Nurse. I quickly got promoted to Room Leader and worked with the different age groups over the whole Nursery. I then became Third in Charge where I learnt about the running of the nursery in more detail giving me the confidence to go for the Assistant Managers position when I returned from maternity leave in 2016. I am currently Acting Manager as my Manager is on a secondment at another nursery.
Asquith were taken over by Bright Horizons in 2016, the transition was smooth and there was little change to us as nursery staff. As the companies merged together so did the paperwork and policies, taking the best from both.
The training that is offered with Bright Horizons is amazing and there is something to suit everyone, face to face training as well as online modules via our e-Learning portal. The induction process is great and really in depth, ensuring all new staff are made to feel welcome and supported from the start of their carer with Bright Horizons.
I feel really happy and settled in my role and would only recommend Bright Horizons to anybody looking for a lovely company to work for.”
