Meet the Team

Susan Crossman

I have been fortunate during my career to have worked within a wide range of services within the childcare sector and I am very excited about joining the team at Harwell.  I will be transferring from my current role at Little Stars in Harwell, therefore I already have experience working as part of Bright Horizons. My previous role I managed a nursery for eleven and a half years and I am both a parent and grandmother and enjoy spending time with my extended family. The children I have worked with call me Susie, Sue or SuSu I do not mind any of the name variations.  I am hugely looking forward to meeting all of the children and families over the coming days and weeks.

Cassie Wells

I have worked for Bright Horizons for 7 years now and have worked my way up all the way from starting as a student to my current role as deputy. I have worked in various different age groups and have enjoyed every one. 

In 2015 I graduated with my BA Honours degree in Early Childhood Studies, having studied for 3 years alongside working full time. It was hard work at times but so fulfilling now I have completed it.
