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.

Manager & Deputy Manager
Executive Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Chesterton
My Career with Chestnut Nursery Schools began in 2007 after I qualified with a Level 3 Diploma in Child Care and Education. I began working as a class room practitioner working my way up through the company to become a manager. Through out this time I completed the Foundation Stage Degree in Early Years and Child Care. Chesterton is the fourth nursery I have managed within the company, ensuring high quality child care is provided to all children encouraging their age and stage abilities in all areas of development. My passion strives each day as no two days are ever the same when working with children and their families. I feel close partnership working between parent/carers, outside agencies and children is vital in order for each child to blossom and develop their individuality’s, growing in to young independent, confident adults. Chestnut Nursery School has encouraged me to become a strong ambassador for the company, supporting my learning and offering fantastic further developing opportunities.
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.
