Meet The Family



Hi.  I'm Sarah and I'm the proud owner of Watermead Day Nursery and Pre-School.  From its original conception over 10 years ago I've watched the nursery grow and mature in to what it is now.  More recently I've overseen the renovation of our adjacent family home, Brook Farm House, into the new pre-school facility.  I have very high standards that I hope are reflected in the setting, and I'm kept on my toes by our two children, Sienna and Scarlett, who both regularly visit the nursery and often offer feedback. 


Deputy Manager

My name is Rebecca and I have 14 years experience working in childcare.  In this time I have also had the opportunity of helping run a day nursery.  I have worked in a few settings and enjoy working with all ages.

I have two children of my own, Elliot who is my eldest son aged 7 and Leighton who is aged 5.

Whilst I am not at nursery I enjoy taking time to go to the gym, joining in various classes.  My favourite past time is spending it with my family and going on trips with them.  I also enjoy reading a variety of books and socializing with my close friends.


Qualified Teacher

I am a qualified teacher with over 20 years’ experience in education, mainly in instrumental music and general primary classes. I have a degree in music, specifically in music performance, I play the flute and the piano and am currently teaching myself the guitar. I have three children in local schools, who have a variety of interests. I also enjoy reading and spending time with friends and family.
