Manager & Deputy Manager


Belita Malungo

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Halbutt Street

My name is Belita and I have been working in childcare for 8 years. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Studies and I joined Chestnut Nursery Schools in 2021. In my Early Years’ experience, I have loved working with children and watching them grow and blossom. By doing this, I have enjoyed seeing children have fun with our amazing, creative activities developed for them to expand on their knowledge, imagination and interests.


Ingrid Lackova

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Halbutt Street

I have been working with children for the past 23 years; for the last 6 years I have worked for Chestnut Nursery where I started as a student working my way up to Room Leader/Deputy Manager. Through years of experience working as a nanny and a nursery practitioner I have developed the ability to work with young children and their families in a sensitive and positive way. I love the atmosphere of the nursery, to make learning a fun experience for children, encouraging their enthusiasm and determination to learn through play. It is incredibly rewarding.
