Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Our nursery setting is open Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 18:30, for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. Our fees are fully inclusive, covering all nappies, milk, creams, wipes and freshly cooked meals. Our highly qualified nursery team helped us to secure a Good rating from Ofsted.

Meet the Team

Shaneic Simpson

Childcare has always been my passion. I have a BA degree in Education Studies and I have also achieved my Early Years Professional Status. Additionally, I work as a Freelance Early Years Ofsted Inspector. I first came into early years when I completed my degree in 2010. I believe good quality education and care is something that we simply cannot compromise on. As a practitioner I believe in creating a highly stimulating environment which meets the needs of all children. I endeavour to work closely with parents to ensure children’s achievements are recognised and gaps are close in their early education. 


Vikki Gunn

I have always been passionate about working with children and learning new ways and techniques to help them develop. I have been in childcare for 10 years now but I have been at Blue House Nursery and Preschool for the last 7 years. I have a Level 3 in Childcare and I have various other qualifications. I love working alongside families to ensure that children have the best possible start in their early development.

I enjoy working with the Nursery Manager to provide every family in our care with a safe and friendly environment where children can begin their love of learning.


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!
