Samantha Booth – Nursery Manager

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. 


Rachel Gray

Hello my name is Rachel, I have worked here since May 2009 and am level 3 qualified in childcare.

I worked in the toddler room for a year and a half and then in babycare for 8 years where I became room leader and the third in charge. I loved helping to look after all of the new families and children coming into the nursery, and knowing that the children would be safe and well looked after.

In January 2019 I became Deputy Manager and help support the running of the nursery along with spending time with all of the children in their rooms.

It is very rewarding to watch all of the children grow and develop through their time with us before their next big adventures.

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!

Why Bright Horizons

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.
