Manager & Deputy Manager


Claire McGhee

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools St. Nicholas House

I have been working with children from Early Years to Year 6 key stage for the past 10 years. Previous to this I trained as a Children’s Photographer and also enjoyed teaching classroom workshops in schools. Back in 2009 I then began my first steps into Early Years and completed my Level 2 and Level 3 NVQs in Early Years Children’s Learning and Development and in 2012 Children’s and Young Peoples Workforce 0 to 19 years. In 2013 I progressed to a Deputy Managers role completing my Leadership and Management training and Setting Safeguarding Lead, working with children up to 11 years in a large out of school provision in Norwich. I have always been extremely passionate around working with children of all ages and creating fun, exciting, rich learning and play environments to meet all children’s needs and abilities.


Laura Fayers

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools St. Nicholas House

I have worked within early years for over 8 years. After I completed my Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education, I became an early year’s educator. It is so rewarding supporting all children to reach their full potential and such a privilege to work alongside so many families. I decided I wanted to develop further so alongside being an early year’s educator I completed my Bachelor Honours Degree in Childhood Studies. I then progressed onto becoming a room lead and senior lead. I have since become a Deputy Manager and thoroughly enjoy my role here at Chestnut Boutique Nursery School St Nicholas House. I love creating rich learning environments for all children to thrive in.
