Manager & Deputy Manager


Georgia Froud

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Cottenham

I began working with Chestnut Nursery School in 2010, after graduating Sheffield Hallam University. I progressed from childcare practitioner to nursery manager within my time working for the company. I am fortunate enough to have been trained by some amazing managers which I believe has given me the best start to my career. I took some time away from the company in 2018-2021, due to a serious skiing accident, which then pushed me and my long-term partner to finally make the decision to move in with each other in his childhood town of Stevenage. I have spent my entire academic and professional career learning about how children can fulfil their potential whilst in a high quality and stimulating environment. Through working with Chestnut, I have learnt how to provide children with a caring and nurturing environment in which they can thrive and develop both personally and educationally. I love the fact that working with children can be a completely unique and different experience every single day and you constantly learn from them and others around you.

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Cottenham

I began working in Early Years 7 years ago and have since achieved an array of childcare related qualifications, including my Level 3 in Early Years and becoming a Designated Person for Safeguarding. My passion is ensuring children are provided with an enriched learning environment, which will enhance their fundamental skills in all areas of development. I believe as Early Years practitioners it is our responsibility to enable children to have the possible start to their early childhood, which will have a positive impact on them in later life.
