Tom started working with children in 1997 as part of his Duke of Edinburgh award. He worked in nurseries and out of school clubs in a variety of roles, before taking a break from childcare to work as cabin crew for several major airlines, progressing his career to Cabin Crew Manager and Trainer.
Returning to children's services saw Tom working in a variety of roles including Development and Quality support on behalf of the local authority, Project Managing childcare initiatives such as childminding development, extended schools and early help. Most recently, prior to his role at Bright Horizons, Tom was a Regional Manager for a large children's charity, supporting nurseries, out of school clubs, youth services for the armed forces and early help targeted projects. When the charity closed suddenly, Tom decided to take the opportunity to return to nursery and work directly with children and families.
Tom is qualified to Level 4 with a Higher Diploma in Early Years, alongside Level 3 training in Playwork. He firmly believes that children should remain at the very centre of everything that we do and is a strong advocate for child led learning and effective family partnerships, supporting a child to achieve their very best potential.
I have worked at Bright Horizons since January 2018 starting off as a baby room leader and working my way up to Deputy. I have worked with children for just over 5 years and have always had a passion for working with children ever since a very young age. I enjoy building close relationships with parents and watching children’s individual characters grow from a young age, I take pride in the fact that mine and my teams influence has an impact on the people they grow into. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful, caring and enthusiastic team that work together to provide a fun, stimulating and secure environment for the children in our care.
