Meet the Team

Carole Byrne

I have been at Bright Horizons in Epping since 2011, progressing from Nursery Nurse to Room Leader in Toddler Room and then on to  the Baby Room. I took up the position of Deputy Manager in 2013 and thoroughly enjoy my role. I have recently taken on the role of nursery manager.

Prior to my nursery career I worked in a school, mainly in reception class. Whilst pursuing this career I attended university and took my B.A. in Education and more recently my Early Years Professional Status. I am passionate about passing on my knowledge and training to help develop the staff, who in turn, I aim to inspire a love of using play to help children learn.

Meggie Davis

I have worked for Bright Horizons Epping since 2009 after leaving college with my Level 3 Diploma in child development. I started as a Nursery Nurse in the baby room, from this I progressed to Room Supervisor and then Deputy Manager.

My passion lies in ensuring that the children in our care develop and flourish to their best abilities while feeling happy and confident in a safe and secure environment.

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!
