Our Team in Chieveley

What sets us apart from other Day Nurseries and Pre-Schools is that our staff are all long serving. Our manager has been with us for 23 years and around 70% of the team are mums, dads or grandmas or grandpas themselves, bringing real life childcare experiences with them.

Jenna is supernumerary which allows her to spend time in all rooms allowing her to share new idea with the team and constantly improve what we do, which is something she highly enjoys. Jenna expects a high standard of care which was recognised in the latest Ofsted inspection “The manager sets high standards and provides strong leadership, continuing to raise practice across the nursery to give children the very best start in life”.
