Paul Fitzpatrick-Spinks

My journey with Bright Horizons Family Solutions started in 2010 as a Deputy Manager. I was promoted to Nursery Manager at the same nursery and remained there until I moved to open our Crouch End Nursery and Preschool in 2014 which achieved a OUTSTANDING rating with Ofsted. I have been working in childcare for over 17 years when I completed by BTEC National Diploma in Early Years. I have worked in a variety of settings including private nurseries, Sure Start, as a nanny and working abroad for a holiday company.

I continued my career progression with Bright Horizons with promotions to Senior Nursery Manager, Regional Manager and Regional Director. Working in a regional role has been an incredible experience and I am excited to utilise the skills I have gained over the past few years at Bright Horizons Clapham Day Nursery and Preschool. I genuinely enjoy my job and I am so fortunate to work in a profession that is constantly evolving and changing and one that is challenging in all the right ways every day.

I have worked at Bright Horizons Clapham Day Nursery and Preschool since 2014. I started as the Nursery Receptionist and have since been promoted to the Business Manager. Prior to Bright Horizons I have worked predominately in accounts which is incredibly valuable experience for my role as Business Manager. Working in Clapham Day Nursery and Preschool has been by far my favourite job and I have built some wonderful relationships with the children and families.

My journey with Bright Horizons started in 2009 at our Wandsworth Common Day Nursery and Preschool. I worked alongside the team to achieve an OUTSTANDING from Ofsted and during my time at Wandsworth progressed from a Nursery Nurse to Deputy Manager.

My passion lies with supporting our staff to provide the best possible care for the children we are fortunate enough to look after. I am excited about the next part of my Bright Horizons journey at Clapham Day Nursery and Preschool.

I have worked in childcare for 10 years with a variety of experience in nurseries and as a Nanny. Ensuring children have the best possible start in life is my main priority and I enjoy supporting the team to plan and deliver exciting learning opportunities. I have worked at Bright Horizons for 3 years and have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Room Leader, Third in Charge and most recently as a Deputy Manager.

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.
