Attached to Chesterton Primary School, this nursery is our first in Cambridge. We have good links into Cambridge town centre and the nearby Science Parks.

The nursery is spacious and has a large outdoor area for free-flow learning and exploring. We have four classes all with their own outdoor space offering spaces for children from 0-5 years old. Our classes have mixed age groups with children moving from room to room based on their development and not their age. Mixed age groups have many benefits including older children being role models, developing language skills and children recognising they have differing abilities and supporting one another.

We also offer an hourly rate of childcare for £5.50 on Mondays and Fridays!

Manager & Deputy Manager


Cheryl Adams

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Chesterton

I have been working in childcare for over 15 years. I have worked at, and ran afterschool clubs, been a deputy manager at pre-schools and have also owned my own setting for nearly eight years. Along the way I have achieved qualifications in Playwork, Early Years Care and Education, Assessing Childcare and Leadership and Management. I have a vast experience of all aspects of nursery life. My vision is to build good relationships with the children and parent/carers. This will enable our strong team to create an environment that is nurturing and caring, and that will help and encourage the children to learn and reach their full potential.


Charlie Barry

Trainee Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Chesterton

I have been working at chestnut nursery for two and a half years now starting off in baby room. Whilst working in baby room I also worked on gaining my level 3 child care qualification. Which I achieved shortly after. I worked hard to become toddler room leader. I enjoy working with this age group watching and helping their development. I have made good relationships with the children and the parents within the whole nursery. I have now worked my way up to be deputy manager which I enjoy. I encourage all team members to work hard and have fun making sure all the children achieve the best they can out of the nursery environment.


Abbie Reedman

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Chesterton

I started working at Chestnut Nursery Schools in 2013 shortly after it had opened. I have been able to see the nursery grow and be a part of the journey here. After working for 1 year I became Baby room leader. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in baby room helping give the babies the best start at nursery. I then moved into the toddler room and became room leader there, while also taking on the role as Deputy Manager. As Deputy Manager I enjoy working closely alongside all the families and staff.
