Meet the Team

Jemma Payne

I started with Bright Horizons in June 2009 as the Nursery Manager at Bunnybrookes, our sister nursery based at Addenbrookes. I then moved over to Long Road as the Manager in July 2011. I have a Level 3 NVQ and am one of the Designated Child Protection Officers and Paediatric First Aider. In my spare time I like to exercise and enjoy dining out with friends and family.


Sarah Heil

I am currently the Acting Deputy Manager and also support the Inventors Room. I hold a Level 3 NVQ qualification, am one of the Designated Child Protection Officers and also a Paediatric First Aider. My three year old son attends the nursery with me two days a week and loves his time here. I enjoy spending quality time with my little boy watching him grow. We like to go to the park, feed the ducks and visit grandparents and cousins


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!
