Zoe Davis Nicola Johnson

Nursery Manager

Our nursery Mangers: Zoe Davis & Nicola Johnson are qualified early years educators. They have attended numerous courses surrounding child development and staff management during this time, They truly believe in allowing and encouraging staff training opportunities. Every child matters, every child achieves and developments at their own stage of development and in their very own unique way. By attending ongoing training opportunities allows not only myself but my staff team also to reflect on the day to day practise being delivered and continually learn new techniques of helping children to  achieve and develop.

We are  true believers that children are only young for such a short space of time, so why not allow them to learn and develop through play, by provide a variety of exciting learning opportunities for your children to explore.

As a setting, we work very hard to ensure we are a fully inclusive Nursery and believe we have excellent, warm and welcoming parent partnerships. We also offer good partnership links with the Local Authority and friendly advice and support for children with additional needs.
