Meet the Team

Richard Abery

I have worked within the childcare sector for over 16 years within various positions and have been with Bright Horizons since 2009. I joined the team at St Johns Wood in 2014 after transferring from another Bright Horizons nursery. I have an NVQ level 3, and I am currently working my way to a Foundation Degree in Early Years and Childcare.
My main focus in childcare is ultimately to provide a home from home setting where children can be themselves whilst exploring and developing in a safe environment. 

Nicola Arnold

I have worked in the childcare sector for 24 years, working with a small group that joined the Bright Horizons family for the past 13 years. ​​I attended the University of Gloucester and achieved my Early Years Foundation degree in 2011. I am currently based at East India Dock Preschool as Deputy Manager. I enjoy working with children and seeing their abilities and confidence grow each day. I help and encourage children's learning by talking and listening to them and getting to know the individual child, role modelling and also letting the child take the lead.

I help to nurture our children and do my best to keep them safe and happy in a calm, home form home environment.
