Manager & Deputy Manager


Samantha Joyce

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Taverham

I began my childcare career in 2012 after having my own family. I qualified with a Diploma Level 3 Early Years Educator. I first became a manager in 2015 in a small village pre-school where my own children attended. I have had a wealth of experience managing different nurseries, being able to help children develop and be fortunate enough to really make a difference to their families too. It is the small achievements the children make that reinstates every day why I chose this career. Seeing a child’s eyes light up when they realise they have built the tallest tower or remembered a nursery rhyme is very special. I have just begun my journey with Chestnut Nursery School and already feel part of a very unique family that always puts the child’s needs first.


Sharon Woolley

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Taverham

I have 15+ years’ experience working with children of all ages. I have a level 3 qualification in childcare. I have managed a nursery before so know I can support Sam here at Chestnut Nursery School Taverham. I am married with 2 grown up children, a son, and a daughter. I am also a proud nanny to my grandson Theo who will be 2 next month. I love spending time with my family, 4 dogs, 2 potbellied pigs and sheep. I love working in the baby room as being a mum and nanny, I feel I have a very maternal nature. I love the transition from babies to little independent individuals who have developed their own character.
