Lucy Friddin

Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools Ray Lodge

I have been working within childcare for most of my life, I have done voluntary work within my local community as well as in India for a few weeks. I have a CACHE level 3 and I have completed my Early Childhood Studies Degree, this is when I built upon my career as an early years practitioner. When Chestnut took over the nursery in 2015 I was a room leader, they were able to change the environment to a happier and more welcoming place to be. I really felt that it was just what the nursery needed, Chestnut where able to see the full potential within the nursery as well as the staff. Shortly after I was promoted to a deputy manager and now I have been a manager for just over a year. I love working here at Chestnut Nursery Ray Lodge, we have a diverse, happy, healthy and safe environment. I love working with children as I feel that I make a change to the children’s lives, by providing stimulating learning opportunities for them so they can fulfill their potential.
