Meet the Team at Nurture Me Day Nursery

We have an amazing and inspirational staff team who have many years experience caring for and educating children. Practitioners are motivated and well educated. We have 2 early years teachers working at the setting and we are proud to be able to support apprentices on the journey to becoming early years practitioners and gaining their qualifications.

We provide additional training opportunities for our team to further develop their childcare and development skills and expertise.

The caring, family atmosphere of the nursery enables children to feel exceptionally secure and happy. They form close bonds with their key person and there are excellent relationships between all staff and children. They have extremely good independence in their personal care routines and make their own choices in their play and at meal times.
