Meet the Team

Gaynes Park Management team

Zoe Smith

I have been at Gaynes Park since 1997. I have worked my way through the leadership journey and became the Nursery Manager in 2011. Children make me smile and I love watching them learn and grow every day. My son was born in 2012 and he attended this Bright Horizons nursery before he transitioned to school in September 2016. Being a full time working parent can be challenging so I have a great understanding of our parents feelings when leaving their child in our care and knowing that they are safe and secure.

Frankie Lucas

I have worked at Gaynes Park since 2017 and I have worked in childcare since 2012  working in different fields of early years.   

I started at Gaynes Park as support staff and worked my way up becoming room leader and third in charge.

I became Deputy manager in 2020. I am also the nursery SENCO.     

I enjoy working in partnership with parents from all backgrounds to support children’s development. I enjoy seeing the children play, learn and develop throughout their time at nursery.

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.
