Bright Horizons East Barnet Deputy Manager

Kathryn McKenzie

I have been working at East Barnet nine and a half years.

I achieved a CACHE Level 2 and 3 qualification in Childcare and Education in 2012.

I have many roles within the nursery these include: Special Educational Needs Coordinator, designated safeguarding lead officer, health and safety officer and fire marshal.

I enjoy coming to work every day to support the children’s development and learning. I ensure the children have a safe, fun and enabling environment whilst they are nursery to ensure they can meet their learning potentials and give them the best start before they leave us to transition to a school environment.

I strive to create a strong parent partnership from our very first meeting.

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.
