Meet the Team

Nikki Black

I have been working in childcare for 12 years, having worked my way up from a Support Worker to Room Leader and have recently been appointed to Nursery Manager at St Swithin.

I genuinely enjoy my job and I am so fortunate to work in a profession that is constantly evolving and changing and one that is challenging in all the right ways every day.

I have my SVQ level 3 qualification and am currently studying for my CCLD level 4 which I aim to complete early next year.

Kim Scanlan

I have been working at St Swithin Nursery since 2009. I achieved the HNC Early Education and Childcare qualification while studying at college and last year I completed the Children's Care Learning and Development level 4.

I have experience in various roles within the nursery from Practitioner, Room Leader and then onto Deputy Manager in July 2016. This role has been a great opportunity for me as I am able to implement the knowledge and skills I gained while studying the level 4 qualification.

I enjoy spending time daily within both the baby and infant departments supporting the staff in their practice as well as building relationships with the children and their families.

I have always had a passion for working with young children and feel lucky to have such a rewarding job.

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!
