Conveniently located for easy access to Southgate Underground Station (Picadilly Line), Active Learning Southgate is ideal for commuting parents. The nursery boasts a fully equipped art studio, a preschool science lab and an IT studio, as well as a sensory room for the younger children. The large garden means all children can explore the natural world as well. All meals are nutritionally balanced, prepared using fresh ingredients by our own chef.

Alyson Slattery

I started working with Bright Horizons in 1995 in that time my career has developed   from Senior Nursery Nurse to Third in Charge to Deputy Manager and then to  Nursery Manager,   I left Bright Horizons in September  2013 and joined Active Learning in April 2014 where I became a Senior Vice Principal at West Hampstead  I then became Principle in that time Bright Horizons had acquired Active Learning in July 2015.

I then transferred to Active Learning Southgate as the Nursery Manger in January 2016. I am extremely passionate about early years and education, I am approachable and a confident communicator I enjoy making work a fun yet professional place to be for both my staff and families.


Hasina Ruparelia

I started with Active Learning Childcare in September 2008 as a nursery nurse at the North Finchley branch. I was promoted to senior mentor after 6 months and to a Third in Charge in 2012. The summer of 2014 I was promoted to Deputy Manager at the Southgate branch.

I have been working in childcare since 2005 when I completed my Diploma in Childcare and Education Level 2 and 3. I am very passionate about my job and proud to see all the children grow and develop into young adults.


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!
