Sarah Harman Sheppard

I am the Senior Nursery Manager based here at Godalming Bright Horizons and I qualified in 1991.  Starting my  childcare and education career in a local primary school, I went onto work for social services and then became a Deputy Head at a Montessori school.   

However in 1996 my journey started at Bright Horizons, and over the years my career has been varied and exciting.  I have managed and opened many settings.

Then in 2001 I opened Godalming Day Nursery and Pre School. I achieved two Ofsted Outstanding's with a committed, highly motivated and qualified staff team.  As a parent, my son attended Godalming Nursery.

I can truly say that Bright Horizons early years education and care gave a firm foundation for my sons continued love of school and learning. Also the ease of making long and happy friendships and a joy of being a child with other children.  My team and I wish the same for your child and much more.

We look forward to meeting you and your family when you come and visit.

Hello, I am the Deputy Manager based here at Godalming Bright Horizons and I have a Level 3 in Childcare in the workforce.

I have been working for Bright Horizons for over a year and have been recently promoted from Pre-School Room Leader to Deputy Manager. I love working with children and seeing them learn and develop through planned activities and free play.

They are a pleasure to work with and it is always amazing to see them grow up and become school ready.

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!

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.
