Meet the Team

Becky Freeman

Hi my name is Becky Freeman, I am the Nursery Manager of Zoom Nurseries in Blackheath. I have worked for Zoom for just over 10 years now, starting off as a Senior Practitioner in the Little Explorers (2-3 yrs room) and then to Lead and then Third in Charge all at our Hither Green nursery. This was over a period of 3 years and then I moved over to Blackheath as a Deputy Manager when we opened in April 2011. I have now managed Blackheath for 4 years.

We are a very busy nursery, with a very healthy waiting list. Most of our families come from recommendations from existing or families we have had in the past. We are a very close community here in Blackheath, which is very rewarding and nice to be a part of.

I absolutely love my job and have a fantastic team who are as passionate as me in helping and supporting children through the most important milestones in their lives. We thrive to offer the best possible experience for children and their families and work together with them to build little independent people to send out into the big wide world.

We are a very creative team with lots of diversity and culture and range from 17 years old up to 60 years old, we make a great team through effective communication and all being on the same page with putting the children at the front of everything we do.


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.
