Meet the team

Michelle Shaw

Nursery Manager

Hi I have worked in childcare for the past 20 years and have gained my NVQ Level 3 in Childcare and Education. I have enjoyed a variety of different roles in the childcare industry. Coming to Worthing has been a pleasure and I settled in really well. I love going into a new setting and looking at all the things it does well and then striving to make them even better.

As the manager i strongly believe in offering the childcare I would want for my own children. I work hard with my team to offer not only a safe and welcoming environment for the children that attend but also a fun, loving and stimulating environment too.

Outside the nursery i enjoy spending time with my children and family.
