There is a large team of Nursery Nurses and Nursery Assistants who care for the children, as well as staff, who provide the meals and administrative support.  A Senior Nursery Nurse leads each of the four base rooms supported by the Deputy Managers and Head of Nursery.  We also have two cleaners who carry out regular daily cleaning.
