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
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, then took on the role as Manager. As Manager, I enjoy working closely alongside all the families and staff.
Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Chesterton
After always having a passion for working with children, I began my Primary Education BA Hons (QTS) degree and graduated from University with Qualified Teacher Status in 2016. I joined the Chestnut Team at Chesterton in December 2021 as the leader of the baby room and became deputy manager in February 2022. I am extremely passionate about working with children and hope that by using my prior knowledge and experience with children of all ages, I can become an influential and inspiring deputy manager/room leader. I hope to ensure that all children who attend our Chestnut nursery reach their full potential and thrive in a happy and positive environment.
