Meet the Team

Samantha Booth

I have been working for Bright Horizons since 2006. I began my journey as a Nursery Nurse working my way up into senior management in 2011. In 2014 I became a maternity covering manager at Teddies Maidstone and then in 2015 I transitioned to Manager at Teddies Tonbridge.

I am very passionate about providing high quality care and a safe and secure environment for all the children. I often spend time observing and mentoring staff as well as spending time with the children. I am very committed to ensuring that our company vision of Keeping Everyone Safe is very evident within our nursery. 

Naomi Lucas

I have worked at Teddies Tonbridge since 2003. I started as a Nursery Nurse working with children aged 2-3 years. I then became Room Leader of Preschool in 2005. In 2011, I moved rooms to Baby Care to more experience within my role and was able to support new parents to the nursery and also give advice and support with their child’s development.

In 2013 I became Deputy Nursery Manager and I work alongside the Nursery Manager to ensure we are providing high quality childcare in a fun and safe environment. 

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!
