I have worked with Bright Horizons over the last five years in different roles from Nursery Manager of our Cramond Nursery to Field Manager. I qualified as a Nursery Nurse way back in 1988 and when I qualified I worked for many years as a nanny in the UK, Saudi Arabia, Australia and New Zealand before returning to the UK to work in nursery settings. I have a Degree in Childhood Practice which I completed in 2013.
I am passionate about childcare and supporting our children, families and work colleagues. I can usually be found with a book in my hand and one of my favourite things is to see the wonder on a child’s face when they are fully immersed in a favourite story. I believe children learn best through play and here at Gogarburn nursery we have rich learning environments including spacious gardens and grounds where our children can explore the natural environment in a meaningful way. I am proud to be a part of the Bright Horizons Family
My passion has always been to work in childcare. I volunteered at my local nursery while I was still at school, then worked my way up in a private nursery from Apprentice to Room Leader, and then Lead Practitioner. I joined Bright Horizons in January 2019 as Lead Practitioner and was promoted to Deputy Manager within my first year. Since starting my childcare career in 2013 I have completed my SVQ 3 in Children and Young People, HND in Childhood Practice and now plan to go on to study my BA in Childhood Practice. I have a very rewarding job and am thrilled I get to experience the changes in our children as they grow and develop.
The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
