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.

Manager & Deputy Manager


Clare Nalukwago

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Earlham Grove

I have been working with children since 2008 and for Chestnut Nursery Schools for over ten years. I am currently doing a PhD in law, and I have previously completed a Masters in Global and International Education, a Degree in Special Educational Needs and Inclusion studies and a level 3 in Child Care and Diploma. With my experience and knowledge, I continue to believe that if children are given the necessary tools to succeed, they will succeed beyond their wildest dreams. My aim is to therefore ensure that all children are given the same opportunities to thrive through their childhood, irrespective of who they are or where they come from. Furthermore, putting their emotional needs first is very important to me because without feeling safe and understood, no instructional strategy will be effective.

I have been working in a nursery setting for 6 years now and have loved every moment so far and the joy only continues. I am qualified with both my Level 3 childcare and Level 5 senior practitioner diploma in management.
