Epping nursery manager

Carole Byrne

I have been at Bright Horizons in Epping since 2011. I progressed from Nursery Nurse to Room Leader.  I took up the position of Deputy Manager in 2013 and then in 2014 became Nursery Manager. 

Prior to my nursery career I worked in Primary School Education mostly in reception and Key Stage 1. I have attended University and took my B.A. in Education and went on to to gain my Early Year’s Teacher Status. 

I am passionate about passing on my knowledge and training to help develop and upskill my staff, who in turn, I aim to inspire a love of using play to help children learn.

I started my journey at Bright Horizons in 2017 when I decided I wanted a career in something that I could both enjoy and excel in. When I first joined I was a Nursery Assistant and was given the opportunity to take my Level 3 qualification. 

Once completed I progressed to Room Leader in Preschool  I was able to lead my team which I enjoyed immensely and also carrying out these duties gave me an even greater understanding of more aspects of childcare and how to support the wellbeing of the children and the staff. 

After a year as a Room Leader I was successful in becoming Third in Charge.

By combining my tasks I have supported the Management team, which then led me to being offered my current Role of Deputy Manager.  I am very fortunate to have a career in a job that I am passionate about and ensuring the happiness, education and health and safety of the children, as well as maintaining that the nursery runs professionally and successfully. 

I am extremely interested in furthering my career and am grateful for the opportunities that have been given to me by my Manager and the company.

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!
