Name of person

Claire Chadwick

I have been working in childcare since 1989, when I joined kidsunlimited (now Bright Horizons) as a student at the Wilmslow site. My love for working professionally alongside children developed rapidly and it was clear that my childhood career aspirations were correct.

I qualified in 1991 and was offered a position at kidsunlimited Wilmslow where I had completed my placement. I became an extremely keen and eager Nursery Nurse with great passion to provide exciting and stimulating experiences.

As my career developed, I was promoted to become a Deputy Manager and then a Manager. I have had many experiences as a Manager and have been lucky enough to work at a number of kidsunlimited and Bright Horizons nurseries such as Didsbury, Summerfields and Chester.  My leader role was a fantastic career progression and I spent many years developing strong relationships with children, parents and team members.

After 11 years with kidsunlimited I decided I would like to try a training role and trained to become an NVQ assessor in Childcare for a private training company. 

In 2009 I was approached by kidsunlimited to join the Crewe team as their Nursery Manager. It was nice to come back to a company I knew so well and to see how they had developed & grown. I have recently had two children whom both attend Crewe Day Nursery. My little boy Jack was born in August 2012 and my little girl Molly was born in January 2015. 

My career has been both exciting and very rewarding. I love being part of an amazing team that really do make a difference in the children’s lives we care for.

I have been working in childcare since I left college in 2005, I was employed by a private day nursery caring for the two to three year old children.

After some time in this position, my determination to develop prompted me to apply for the role of Deputy Manager at another private day nursery. I was successful in my application and was provided with the opportunity to develop myself further professionally, enabling me to enhance the learning and development of the children and my staff team.

Following on from this I completed my Foundation Degree in Supporting Teaching and Learning to further develop myself professionally; it was when this course was completed that I began to work for Bright Horizons (previously kidsunlimited). 

I was initially appointed to cover maternity leave in the baby room, however luckily a position then arose in the pre-school room (again maternity cover). I was fortunate enough that this position become permanent and I have been able to establish a confident and structured team.

Loving the interaction with children I had been reluctant to apply for positions outside of the typical nursery room structure; it was however when the position for a room based deputy became available I was very keen to apply; giving me the opportunity to develop my knowledge and understanding but while also maintaining the interaction and supporting of the children. 

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!

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.
