Welcome to Cottage Day Nursery
Welcome to Cottage Day Nursery

Our Staff


Here at Cottage Day Nursery, we pride ourselves in having a strong team that has worked together for a number of years.


Without our hard-working, dedicated and experienced staff we wouldn't be able to offer the levels of love and care that we do.


We are committed to staff training and the majority of our staff have at least NVQ2 or NVQ3 training.  Those who have achieved their NVQ2 are undergoing further training for NVQ3s.  Anyone joining the nursery that is not qualified will be given full training as soon as they join us.  We are proud to have a graduate manager and an in-house trainer.  We are committed to promote equal opportunity and advertise any vacancies as such.
