Susan Goodbrand

Prior to joining Watford in January 2015, I was the nursery manager at our sister nursery, Chesham, for three years achieving an Outstanding Ofsted during my time there. I have also worked at the Park Nursery in Watford for five years as the deputy manager. I have been with Bright Horizons since March 2007. I have been working in nurseries for over 13 years. I have worked my way up from being a nursery nurse to a room leader and then to a senior nursery nurse and then to a deputy manager and finally a nursery manager. I qualified in 2002 and gained an A grade in my CACHE DCE level 3. I also have an NVG level 3 in Management. I have always wanted to work with children and my journey started when I was at secondary school and I studied child development for my GCSE. I was so passionate about the subject and gained an A in GCSE Child development. I am currently expecting twins in October 2015 and feel that my many years of childcare experience will help me to bring up my own children.

I started with Bright Horizons in 2010. I started working in kidsunlimited Watford in 2010 as a nursery nurse. I gained my level 3 and then became a room supervisor. I transferred to kidsunlimited East Barnet as a room supervisor of the preschool room and then became the deputy manager there. I went on maternity leave in February 2014 and returned to kidsunlimited Watford in October 2014 to cover the deputy who is currently on maternity leave. I have cared for children for over 14 years in various different settings. I have a little boy aged 15 months who keeps me very busy when I am not at work.
