Meet the Team

Denise Sharkey

I have worked at Callands for nearly 18 years. I started as a student working in various rooms to gain experience and once qualified to NVQ Level 3, I was based in the Pre-School room as a Nursery Nurse. I quickly became Supervisor for the Pre-School unit and in 2003 I progressed to Deputy Nursery Manager. In 2012 I became the Nursery Manager for Callands. We have a great team, and we continue to grow and succeed - this is evident with our latest “Good” OFSTED result. I am passionate about my role within the nursery and my team, the children in our care and their families. 

Jenny Connor

I have worked at Callands for nearly 15 years. I started at the age of 17 working in various rooms, qualifying as a NVQ Level 3 Nursery Nurse through the company’s in house training.  I then progressed to Room Leader in 2010 based in the Baby Room for 4 years. I took on the role of covering Deputy Manager in June in 2014 for 9 months, which I thoroughly enjoyed and I have since been given the opportunity to take on this role full time. I love my job and I have met some fantastic children and families over the years and feel I am very lucky to be part of such a fantastic team. 

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!
