Nicola Kenny

I have been in the Childcare industry since 2002 and have a level 3 in childcare along with a level 5 in Leadership for the Children and Young People’s Workforce - Early Years (Advanced Practice). I love to see children in a safe and secure environment where they have opportunities to explore, to express and use their imagination through play. Along with them challenging themselves to embrace their own individual learning and development, so that each little one flourishes and grows to the best that they can be. I am very passionate in sharing my wealth experience to support my team. To see them grow to their full potential thus giving them the skill set to deliver and maintain excellence in their work ethic to create a high quality learning environment that we can all be proud of.

Name of person

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!
