Meet the Team

Jackie Simpson

I have a real passion for working with children and their families. Over the past 22 yrs I have gained experience in a wide range of childcare settings including, playgroups, nurseries, After School Clubs, Nanny work in Norway and helping with NHS Paediatric Complex Needs team. I have 6 years of management experience and fully qualified holding both my HNC and HND in Childhood Practice. At present I am studying my BA in Childhood Practice and due to qualify in the next 6 months.

Sarah Woods

I have worked in the Early Learning and Childcare field for 22 Years and am still amazed each and every day at how the children in our care develop into the people they become. It is an honour to be part of their young lives and play a small part in the children’s and their families lives. 

I qualified first with my SNNEB and from college have developed to a position with Leadership responsibilities within Bright Horizons as Deputy Manager,  I achieved my SVQ 4 in 2013 and am currently working towards my BA in Childhood Practice with Dundee University .

I have worked for Bright Horizons for nearly 9 years, previously working in another early years private nursery since qualifying. I am passionate about supporting our staff team in providing a respectful and nurturing environment for all children, ensuring that their individual needs and qualities are respected and nurtured. I am proud to be part of a team who consistently achieve exceptional outcomes in inspections and excellent feedback from families.   I am committed to continuous Professional Development to strive to be the best I can be so that we can provide high quality care and learning. My own son, who is at school now, attended Bright Horizons at Livingston from a very young age and still talks fondly of his time at nursery. 

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!
