So you’re interested in Cherubs Pleasley? Let Nursery Manager, Nikki tell you more about it…

Cherubs Day Nursery, Pleasley is a purpose built nursery, just outside Mansfield town centre. Conveniently located at the Pleasley Landmark Centre there are regular bus links into Mansfield, Nottingham City Centre and further afield and direct access to the M1, which means it’s great for both local and commuting parents alike.

When it comes to Ofsted Cherubs Pleasley has been graded a “Good” nursery by Ofsted. In our most recent Ofsted inspection, which took place on 9th September 2016, Ofsted Inspector, Lianne McElvaney praised the nursery saying “staff have a good knowledge of how children learn. They use this to provide a wide range of exciting and stimulating activities that promotes children’s development well.” She then commended the management team saying that “they are passionate and committed to improving outcomes for the children.” If you would like to read more, please download the report here.

We have a very well-established team here at Cherubs Pleasley. Many of my colleagues have been here for years and it’s great to see the same smiley faces everyday. It’s great for us and even better for the children as it means that they are able to build strong bonds with the childcare team, enhancing their time at nursery. All our childcare team are DBS checked and training towards accredited qualifications. We also train the entire team in Paediatric First Aid and Safe Guarding, the children’s safety and welfare is paramount and we know, first hand, that there can be no compromise on this.

Finally, a little more about me. I have been part of Cherubs Nurseries since 2015, as a Nursery Manager. Childcare is what I always wanted to do, I love watching children develop and being part of the development gives you a sense of achievement as we help children every day to learn new skills. I consider myself lucky to be able to say I love my job. I currently hold a Level 3 in Early Years and Level 3 in Management. In addition to Paediatric First Aid, Designated Safeguarding person, SENDCO and Level 3 in Food Hygiene.

There is so much more I would love to tell you about our nursery. However, nothing beats coming to view the nursery for yourself. With that being said, I would like to invite you to come for a show round at your leisure to see what makes us so special.”

Food for thought

As for nursery food, our Nursery Chef, Michelle really is at the heart of the nursery. She has been part of the team for sometime now, making fabulous bonds with all the children who love her food.

As for standards we expect a lot from ourselves and so can you. Our kitchen is regularly expected by the Food Standards Agency, where we have been praised for our high standards. Our seasonal nursery menus are also well-balanced, varied and are always created with the School Foods Standards in mind. We’re also proud to cater for children with special dietary needs including allergies, intolerances and cultural preferences.
