Manager & Deputy Manager


Stacy Hunt

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools The Diamond Centre

During my 5 year’s experience in childcare I have worked with children 0-11 years old. I have developed strong skills in supporting children and young people through their play and learning. I am also passionate about providing the best care and play experiences for children and dedicated to creating stimulating, encouraging, safe environments for all children’s individual needs. I hold a Level 2 diploma in children’s care, learning and development and a Level 3 NVQ diploma in Children and Young People’s Workforce. I began my childcare career as a Play Worker, and I have since developed my professional career journey taking Play Lead and Safeguarding Lead. I have also worked as an early year’s practitioner, gaining knowledge and early year’s experience creating fun, rich learning experiences following the EYFS framework.


Rachael Blything

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools The Diamond Centre

My name is Rachael and I am qualified with a DCE level 3. I have worked in childcare for over 12 years in a range of settings and ages. I started in a nursery as a room leader down in Sussex before deciding to do something completely different and went to work abroad for 10 years with a holiday company. Here I worked in the childcare department, working in different roles leading up to becoming a childcare manager for over 5 years, and in the winter season after working as head of childcare for several years became a hotel manager. When returning to the UK I knew childcare was my main passion as I have always enjoyed encouraging the children to become individuals and their own little person with personalities to match. I feel childhood needs to be enjoyed to the full and I like helping the children to do this by being part of it. In my spare time I take salsa classes which is lots of fun and I belong to my local rock choir group which I often enjoy performing with.
