Meet the Team

Barnes Manager Rosie

Rosie Lee

Hi my name is Rosie.   I have been working for Bright Horizons since June 2015.  I started as a Nursery Nurse and have worked my way up over the years and became a Nursery Manager in August 2020.   

I am a fun and pedagogical leader who is able to lead and inspire a team to achieve results. I believe that it is imperative to make strong respectful relationships with all staff, children and parents. 

The Children’s safety is paramount and safeguarding measures are effective and robust. Most importantly I believe that the children's happiness, progress and enjoyment of nursery should be at the forefront of everyday.   Every day is a different day and as long as we are welcoming in and sending home happy and engaged children then we are most definately doing something right.

Candy Floss

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!

Why Bright Horizons

The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
