Meet the Team

Malcolm Vickery

I have been in childcare and with Bright Horizons for since 2007. I have a Level 3 CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education. My passion for childcare is that I want to make a difference in a child’s life. I enjoy watching children grow and blossom into little people and I love being part of that. No two days are ever the same and seeing and hearing the children’s laughter and voices is such an amazing feeling.

Tiffany Haimowitz

I have been working at Eton Manor since 2007.  I first joined this nursery as a student and was lucky enough to secure a job here.  My journey began as a Nursery Practitioner. Soon, I was promoted to a Room Manager of our two pre-school rooms. This was a new and exciting challenge for me as I had to create the enabling environments, support the transitions for school and share my experience of letters and sounds and pre-school elements with the team. I have, along with my team, created a magical preschool setting where children and families feel comfortable, understanding the element of learning through play. 

In 2013, I had the opportunity to join the management team as the third in charge of the nursery. During this journey I was supported in learning about other aspects within the nursery setting, where I took on additional roles and responsibility. I am an extremely passionate Nursery Nurse who always strives for the best in myself and the team. I have trained staff to be confident in the EYFS and they are now producing high quality learning journeys.

I have been the Deputy Manager since 2015 at Eton Manor and my journey here has definitely helped me to support my Manager in working towards that outstanding provision.  I have attended current community meetings to ensure we are keeping up to date with the new legislations. I am responsible for making sure the nursery has a strong culture of behaviour safety as the Health and Safety Officer. My hard work and motivation has secured us Green on our recent inspection.


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!
