Meet the Village Nursery Team

At The Village Nursery and Pre-school we believe that ‘children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person’ (DfCSF, 2012).  As well as being highly-qualified, experienced and extremely passionate about working with children, all our staff are friendly and helpful and committed to working with you as parents to enable each and every child to have the best possible nursery experience.

We have a large team that is growing all the time.  Here are some members of our team.
