A place to grow

Our nursery setting is open Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 18:30, for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. We are proud to offer our unique Growing Programmes as well as extra-curricular activities including Theatrebugs and Les Coccinelles French classes.

Meet the Team

Lorna Meese

I have worked in childcare and education for the past 20 years and have gained extensive knowledge having been in a variety of positions, from an Early Years teacher, to private nanny. I have a passion for childcare and I love seeing the children who attend the nursery develop into happy, confident and independent children, who leave us for big school ready and raring to go on their journey, continuing their lifelong love of learning.

Nicole Wilkin Anglin

I have over 5 years’ experience in childcare, working with children of all ages. I have a passion for childcare and aim to ensure that each child is able to flourish in a naturally stimulating environment. I started off as a Toddler Room Supervisor and the nursery Third in Charge and later joined the management team to help lead up to 30 people. My desire to achieve led me to Deputy Manager at our Ladbroke Grove nursery where I have developed and gained more experience in the day to day management of a nursery setting.
