Meet the team

Tor Dunster-Best

Nursery Manager

I have been working in Childcare for the past 15 years and hold a NVQ - Level 3 in Childcare Learning and Development, NVQ - Level 3 in leadership and Management and I am currently working towards a BA hons in Early Childhood. 

I have always enjoyed spending time with young children and from an early age I knew that a career in childcare was my future path. I am passionate about working with children and thrive on creating positive and safe environment where staff and children can flourish.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, baking cakes and taking long walks down the beach. 

I looking forward to meeting you and your family and welcoming you to our nursery.
