The Playdor Family

The Owners

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!

Jane is a Registered Nurse, Midwife and a Specialist Advisor to the Care Quality Commission. Jane also owned and ran a successful rest home for the elderly for 20 years. Jane is regularly at both sites for swimming lessons, for a spot of cooking or just for a cuddle (with both children and staff!)

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.

The Rest of the Family

Cheryl is our early years consultant across both the Chorley and the Higher Walton sites. She has a BA (hons) in Children, Schools and Families and is an Early Years Teacher. Cheryl has a wealth of knowledge and experience, is very ambitious like the rest of the family and is passionate about providing the best  standard of care to all our children.

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.
