Here at Chestnut Nursery School Earlham Grove, based in Forest Gate, East London, children enjoy learning, playing, and developing together. They play confidently with different tools and learn new skills each and every day. This is shown when the children take part in our Core Curriculum, cooking together. Our children explore different smells and textures, while experimenting with different colours. They are able to watch their creation develop and see the outcome with delight, sharing their baking with friends and family members. We love to cook. Our parents feel so happy and secure knowing their child is in good hands, and that they are learning, growing and developing with great care.

Lorraine Butler

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Earlham Grove

I have been working with children since 2006 and my passion for working with children continues to grow. I started as a trainee and worked my way up the ladder throughout my career. I have worked in various boroughs and a variety of settings. With my experience and knowledge, I strive to create a warm, welcoming, stimulating and safe environment for all children to learn, grow, develop and reach their full potential. I am a strong believer in giving children a voice and always putting their needs first.


Clare Nalukwago

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Earlham Grove

Hi, I'm Clare and I am the Deputy Manager at Chestnut Nursery Schools Earlham Grove. I believe a dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work, and I strive to ensure that I have the same work ethic when working with children on a daily basis, as they represent the future. It is therefore my duty to encourage, support, guide, teach and be a part of their developing future to success.
