Meet the Team

Christopher Langdon

Since completing my BTEC Nursery Nurse Diploma, BA in Primary Education in the Early Years and Key Stage 1, I knew that the nursery life was for me.  I started working with 2-3 year olds and soon became deputy manager, then the following year, took on my first management position.  I have been fortunate enough to work in nurseries as both a manager as well as a regional role.

I joined Bright Horizons in May 2016 and after moving to Bracknell,  took on the role of Senior Nursery Manager here at Bracknell Day Nursery and Preschool.  I am extremely passionate about giving the children the very best start in life and like to ensure my team are giving the children as many opportunities as possible to thrive in our care.

Nikki Hopcraft

I have been with Bright Horizons since 2001. I have completed my NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Childcare and Education and also my advanced Diploma in Childcare and Education. I started work as a Room Manager in the 2-3 year old room and then progressed to Deputy Nursery Manager.

I have seen many families go through our nursery and have enjoyed being a part of the children’s development. I have two young children, one of which attends Dolphin Bracknell Nursery.

I work alongside the Nursery Manager to deliver the highest quality care and education for children and families. I also regularly spend time in the nursery rooms observing and mentoring staff in addition to spending valuable time with the children.

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!
