A place to grow

Northwick Park Nursery and Preschool provides care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef.

An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.  

Our two gardens allow the children to flourish and explore the natural environment.

Meet the Team

Bright Horizons Northwick Park Karen Smyth

Karen Smyth

With my university degree in hand, the world at my feet, I was determined to make a difference in the world. Sadly, student debt, credit card debt kept creeping up on me and the corporate world beckoned. By 28, I had realised that, this was not how I wanted my career to be. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to be part of something bigger. So, I started an apprenticeship program in childcare, in my home town of Brighton and worked my way to being a Level 3 practitioner, Room Leader and SENCo. 

I moved to London with my now husband and joined Bright Horizons as a Room Leader, in October 2015. By August 2016 I found myself in a Nursery Manager Role.

I had my son, Joe, in December 2017 and we joined Wembley Nursery in October this year. 

I am one of the very few people who can say, "I love coming in to work." I don't get the Sunday blues. I believe every child deserves the best care and education and that is what my team and I aim to deliver, daily. I love being able to watch children achieve their milestones and overcome any initial struggles. I have the opportunity to see things for the first time through each child and there are no words to describe that feeling.

I began my journey with Bright Horizons in 2016. I started as an apprentice and worked my way up to my current role as a Deputy Manager, once I completed my qualifications.   

I love making a difference in children's lives. I love knowing that I had a small part to play in their development.

I am motivated by each child's uniqueness and tenaciousness and I love how fun every day is.

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!
