Manager & Deputy Manager


Julie Ashworth

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools St. Nicholas House

Following a 20-year career in business administration, I returned to full-time education to study a BA Honours Degree in Primary Education. I graduated with a First in 2007 and since then, I have worked in both the maintained and independent sectors as an Early Years and Key Stage 1 Teacher and Phase Leader. My philosophy is that children who feel happy, safe and valued learn well. Learning is a natural process. A child’s physical environment should support and encourage a sense of curiosity and provide a wide range of opportunities to explore and begin to make sense of the world around them. Alongside my super-talented Deputy, my aim is to create a Nursery where the staff feel valued and supported, where parents feel they are an integral part of their child’s learning journey and where children look forward to coming in every day, knowing that it will be even more exciting and fulfilling than the day before.


Lyndsey McVey

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools St. Nicholas House

With over 10 years’ experience in Early Years and a mother to 3 children, my passion lies with the holistic and early development of children. I hold a CACHE Level 3 qualification in Childcare, Learning and Development and have a breadth of experience in a variety of settings. Having worked internationally as an Early Years Leader in the Middle East for over 5 years, I have a great understanding of multicultural values. I believe in strong parent communication and feel that nursery should be an extension of homelife. This philosophy enables us to prepare the children for the best start on their learning journey.
