Great place to work
I have worked at this nursery for a while and they made sure I was suitable for the job first, then watched me interact with the children. Now I keep up with my training and enjoy working there when I am home from university.

Wouldn’t recommend working for this company
There are a handful of senior people in the business who genuinely care about you, but to the rest you are simply a number. The staff in the nurseries are amazing and it’s what makes the place a good place to work but the ones above the managers simply don’t care about the staff unfortunately.

Focused on money making rather than caring about families
Bright horizons are an awful company to work for. They do not care about mental wellbeing. They don't follow their own rules. Poor management with childish people in charge. It's like working in a school playground. I feel sorry for the poor families that use their services. Staff are just trampled on and not encouraged to move up the career ladder. Poor wages and just overall bad atmosphere all around. Disciplinaries not carried out in accordance to their own policies, one rule for one. You may get on alright if you make friends with management, otherwise they will treat you like dirt. Go and be valued somewhere else. Do not work for this money grabbing company
I met some great people and families at my time at Bright Horizons but the conditions in which I worked in were unsafe. Lone working was deemed acceptable even when caring for young babies which in turn left myself and my colleagues extremely stressed and anxious. It was very heartbreaking to work for a company that cared more about the money rather than the welfare of their children and team. Disgrace to the Early Years sector.

Not as organised
Sorry but the company is disorganised and if you’re new you will not hear from them unless you keep ringing. Staff at certain nurseries are rude to staff and sometimes the children
