On leaving school in 1996 I started a part time college course studying an SVQ 2 in childcare and education. My work placement was at the Birrell Collection Nursery at Bruntsfield. I continued to work here after I finished my qualification and went on to complete my level 3. In 2003, The Birrell Collection opened Cramond Nursery. I moved here as Deputy Manager and helped to develop and build up the nursery. In 2005, the nursery was acquired by Bright Horizons Family Solutions and I have continued to work here since then. My most recent qualification was a level 4 in Childcare in Education.
I have enjoyed watching the nursery grow over the years, embracing the changes in the child care field and implementing them positively throughout the nursery. I have also loved to see the children develop and progress, and to see families return with their second and even third child!!
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.
