Giving back, helping others and creating a sustainable business are three key areas we are incredibly passionate about at Cherubs Nurseries. These are tied together through our community life work which is something we are incredibly proud of.
Making our communities better places to live, work and grow up in
At the heart of community life is our charity partner which is selected from nominations from our staff, parents and families. Throughout the year, we work closely with our charity partner and host events to raise both awareness and money.
After consultation with our parents, staff and children we are proud to announce Nottinghamshire Women’s Aid as our partner for 2022. Established in 1984, Nottinghamshire Women’s Aid Limited (NWAL) provide a safe environment for women with ongoing support, advice, counselling and learning opportunities. They believe that every woman should live a life free from abuse and be the director in their own lives. Nottinghamshire Women’s Aid offer:
- A domestic abuse support service
- Intervention and recovery services
- Children and young people’s domestic abuse support
- Independent domestic violence advocate service
- Refuge support services
- A safe space at the Farr Centre, supporting women, young people and children
A special thanks to Sarah Hickling (Nursery Manager at Cherubs Edwinstowe) for nominating this charity. At Cherubs Nurseries, we really resonate with their mission and are looking forward to supporting them. We would like to share that all our nurseries now offer a safe space and all staff are receiving additional training on how to support our parents who are victims of domestic violence – no matter your gender or how you identify. If you are experiencing domestic abuse and need immediate help, just ask for Ani.
In addition to working with a charity partner, our nurseries come up with fun and exciting ways to involve our children, families and staff in our community life efforts. From residential home visits to clothes swap shops and monthly community clean ups we aim to have a positive, long-lasting and far reaching effect on all the communities we serve, involving as many people as we can. For our children this gives them additional learning opportunities and for our families and people it gives them a sense of pride knowing that they’re doing something worthwhile and truly special.

Corporate Social Responsibility
At Cherubs Nurseries, we place a high level of importance on the sustainability of our business and the impact we have on the world around us. It’s important we ignite an understanding of the world and how to protect it in all the children we care for too.
Some things we do to reduce our carbon footprint include meat free Mondays, mixed recycling across all nurseries and the donation of used toys and equipment to local causes and charities.
