Ciarra Reilly Nursery Manager at East Barnet

Ciara Reilly

I have been in Childcare for 10 years, starting my career at the age of 16. Since coming to Bright Horizons in May 2018, I have had the pleasure of working at Chelsea Day Nursery, while also having the privilege of supporting other nurseries within the organisation. I am now glad to be joining the Lee Park branch. I was born and raised here in the UK, but enjoy spending much of my time in Ireland due to my mother’s side of the family being Irish. I have an amazing relationship with my family and they have always pushed me to strive for the absolute best, both in myself and my career. My aim is to always ensure children are cared for to the highest standards and that the learning we provide is of the highest quality, as we are essentially the key to unlocking these children’s futures. Working with children has always been a dream of mine from a child and I now pursue it as a passion and enjoy leading those I work with to success and creating a fun, enabling and awe-inspiring space for children

Kathryn Deputy Manager at East Barnet

Kathryn Mckenzie

I have worked at East Barnet for 11 years and have had the wonderful opportunities to progress with different roles within this nursery. 
I began working here as a nursery assistant, whilst in college training to be a nursery nurse. Soon after, I qualified as a level 3 practitioner in early years and education and progressed from there as a room leader, third in charge and have now been in my current role as a Deputy Manager for 7 years. I enjoy coming to work everyday and providing a safe, secure, stimulating and engaging environment for the children we care for.  I enjoy watching the children learn, grow and develop in our care and I find this very rewarding to watch. 
My key roles at the nursery are SENCO and Health and Safety Lead and keeping everyone safe. The safety and welfare of the children is paramount importance to us all here.
I look forward to meeting you on our very first meeting, as I know this will be very important for you when finding the right nursery setting and team to care for your child.

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!
