Helen Giermann

I have been working in childcare for over 18 years after qualifying with an NNEB in Childcare and Education. Bright Horizons Bristol was my final placement while studying and. as a new nursery, they were looking for staff to join the team.

I started as bank staff while finishing my course and soon became a permanent member of the team. I then worked my way up from Nursery Nurse to Room Leader; then to Deputy Manager and from Deputy to Nursery Manager. I have always wanted to work in childcare and as part of a motivated team. This year I was promoted to Senior Nursery Manager which has enabled me to step out of my own nursery and support other local Bright Horizons Nurseries in a variety of capacities. I celebrated my 18th year of service with Bright Horizons Bristol in May 2018 and I am proud to be part of a great nursery.

In my spare time I enjoy shopping and eating out, visiting friends and spending time with my family and have 2 boys aged 10 & 8 who are football crazy and keep me very busy.​ I also have 2 house bunnies called Kiki and Maisie who are adorable

I have been in childcare since qualifying with a BTEC ND in Early years in 2003. I previously worked for two companies in a range of settings (as Nursery Nurse, Room leader, Deputy and Manager) over Bristol.

I joined Bright Horizons in 2012 at Woodpeckers as the Baby Room Leader then was promoted to 3rd in Charge after about a year. I felt very quickly that Bright Horizons was a company who took time to value their staff with training to support their future goals. I was offered promotion to Deputy Manager at Bristol Bright Horizons (then Teddies Bristol) in 2014 and I have not looked back! I thoroughly enjoy my job where I get to support, motivate and train an established team.

I have just returned from maternity leave after having my first baby, Maisie, in February. I am really pleased that I am able to return to my job as well as adjusting my working pattern to allow time with my daughter. She is attending the nursery herself and seems to really love being here which, as a parent, gives me great piece of mind whilst I work.


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.
