Lauren Runacre

I started my career in childcare 12 years ago and have been with Bright Horizons since 2008. I started my journey with Bright Horizons as a Nursery Nurse in a Preschool room, working my way up from a Room Manager, to Head of Unit and Quality Care for the under 2 year olds, to Third in Charge and on my return after becoming a mummy for the first time I became Deputy Manager in 2016.

During this time I gained my level 2 & 3 in Childcare, Learning and Development, Level 2 in Leadership and an advanced qualification in Management. I have always had a passion for working with children and alongside a staff team that share the same vision and goals when it comes to quality care. I feel my role as a childcare provider is endlessly rewarding and I love knowing that I am providing a safe, stimulating environment for our children.
