I have been working within Bright Horizons for over nine years starting as a nursery nurse at Shortlands and then progressing to deputy manager. I then moved to our Caterham branch in 2016 gaining experience in a larger nursery before returning to Shortlands as the manager in January 2018. I have my degree in Early Childhood studies and feel this has given me the insight into child development. I have had experience in a nursery in Australia and continue to enjoy refreshing my knowledge and experiences in early years. My passion has always been to guide each child to reach their full potential and I feel blessed that I get to make an impact on their lives at the most important time of their development.
I started working for Bright Horizons in April 2011, and joined the Shortlands team May 2016. I started off as a nursery assistant and have worked my way up to a deputy manager position. I have a level 3 childcare qualification; I am always keen to gain more knowledge and experience. I have a passion for providing children with the best starts in life. I support the team in continuously improving to be the best nursery it can possibly be. Once we reach one goal we will make sure we are reaching for another.
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.
