Meet the Team

Judith Parker

I have been working in early year childcare and education for nearly 20 years and hold a level 4 in early years practice. I love working as a nursery manager, no day is the same and to see the staff team and children here develop and grow brings a great sense of purpose and reward to my professional career. One of our favourite activities at the nursery is creative play children and staff get really involved and love to tell me all about what they have achieved!

Emily Gross

I have worked in childcare for 13 years, originally starting as a Nursery Assistant. From this role I have furthered my carer through professional development which has promoted me to the roles of Room Leader and then onto Deputy Management. 

I joined Asquith in 2011, which placed me in great stead to provide high quality childcare and support to children and their families.

Following the merge of Asquith to Bright Horizons, I became part of the BH team in 2016.

I am IOSH (Health and Safety) trained and designated SENCo at Bright Horizons.

My job is my vocation- I am extremely passionate about all areas of childcare and education and these being delivered at high standards.


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. 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.
