Lucy runs both nurseries and has 10 years experience working within the childcare sector. Since being very young it was very clear to Lucy that she had a real passion for quality education in the early years. She also believes in high quality teaching and learning and therefore promotes first class training and professional development for all staff. Lucy has a BA (hons) in Children, Schools and Families and is always keen to continue adding to her qualifications. Lucy is as passionate about her own family (Amelia, Cheryl and dog Charlie) as she is about her extended Playdor Family!
John is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and has owned, operated and been involved with many businesses over the years. In addition to his financial responsibilities at Playdor he is also very handy with a toolbox for all our handyman jobs!
Having grown up in an ambitious and driven family environment Lucy has always aimed high. Since starting her childcare career it has always been a dream for her to be able to own nurseries and be able to provide care, love, education and most importantly fun to children! Thanks to her Mum and Pop she is now able to do that for all children who walk through our Playdor doors! We aim to give all our children the best possible start to their little lives and her promise to you is that we will always put your children first.
Cheryl works alongside Lucy delivering in house training, carrying out pre and post Ofsted inspections, mentoring staff, tracking learning and development across both sites and ensuring that the environment both indoors and outdoors is stimulating, inviting and promotes quality learning for each individual child. As well as all that she is a full time mummy and has Amelia and Lucy at home to look after too!
Although both nurseries are run by the family we do consider all our children, parents and staff to be a part of our Playdor family. We value and respect staff, love and care for children and support and guide parents throughout their journey at Playdor.
