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.

Helen Clutterham

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Chesterton

Hello my name is Helen and I am the Chesterton Nursery Manager. I joined the company in 2019 and have supported our nursery to achieve a secure ‘GOOD’ Ofsted rating. I have worked in Early Years for 25 years and I graduated recently with my PGCE, complimenting my BA in Education & Early Childhood Studies, Nursery Nursing Diploma and Level 4 in Childcare. I am a qualified Assessor/Verifier for Early Years qualifications and use my experience to support my team to strive to reach their full potential. The children and families are at the heart of all we do at Chesterton. We recognise the importance that these early years have on future learning and welcome everyone into our nurturing family. We look forward to meeting you!


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.
