Meet the Team

Jessie Thaker

I started out my career over 20 years ago as a qualified Nursery Nurse. I have a broad range of experience having worked within a variety of settings from working with children in hospitals and care homes to working in a Sure Start centre. This has given me the opportunity to focus on child development and individual care at a much deeper level as well as focus on child education. My passion for child development and education grew, which led me to become a Nursery Nurse within a private nursery school. I enjoyed the challenges, rewards and opportunities for growth. I have since been working within a nursery and preschool setting, developing experiences and my passion to work with children. Over the years, I worked my way up to Deputy Manager, working in a community and client based nursery in this position. I am very committed to my role and love the fact that each day brings something new. I am very excited about my new role as Deputy Manager for Oak Lane Nursery, to be a part of a new opening, new team and a part of the children’s new journeys.

I gained my NNEB in 1998 and I have been at Twickenham since February 2015. I am currently covering maternity leave but have been working with Bright Horizons for many years. I thoroughly enjoy working in a nursery environment and feel passionate about providing a high quality of care and education for the children.

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!
