Arden House is a converted Registry Office which has large, spacious rooms with high ceilings and plenty of natural light through the bay windows. We offer childcare between the hours of 8.00 am – 6.00 pm for children aged from 0-5 years. We run full and part time day-care sessions with flexible sessions for children accessing the free 15 hours/11 hours educational grant. We have a baby room for children aged 0-2 years which has its own separate sleep area and milk kitchen, 2 toddler rooms for children aged 2-3 years, 1 pre-school room for children aged 3-5 years. We are also lucky enough to have a Children’s Centre within our setting, which furthers links with the local community. We have a large, safe and enclosed garden which is made up of safety surfacing and AstroTurf. We also have a separate natural exploration area offering a variety of exciting and stimulating activities for the children to experience and investigate.
Manager & Deputy Manager
Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Arden House
My name is Kim Pybus and I am Level 3 qualified in Childcare and Education. I have worked in childcare for over 24 years covering many different roles from nursery practitioner, to third in charge and now Deputy. I thoroughly enjoy watching children develop a new skill and become independent whilst using that skill. I have a daughter of my own and she is now in her 20’s. I believe the skills and experience and passion for working with children has played an integral role of both of our growth. I have now been working at Arden House for several years and find this extremely rewarding.
Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Arden House
My name is Tyler, I have over 5 years of experience and I have a level 3 qualification in childcare. My previous experience was as a room leader when I started at Chestnuts as a preschool practitioner, before being promoted to deputy manager. I have always been very passionate about working with children and their families to contribute towards a better future. I enjoy watching children grow and supporting them to learn new skills that they can carry with them through life.
