So you’re interested in Cherubs Sutton-in-Ashfield? Let Nursery Manager, Julie tell you more about it…
Cherubs Sutton in Ashfield is a large nursery in the centre of Sutton in Ashfield situated on Douglas Road. There are regular bus links into Mansfield 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 I’m proud to say that the nursery achieved Ofsted “Outstanding” rating in their most recent inspection. Commenting on the inspection, which took place on 26th August 2015, Ofsted Inspector Tracy Hopkins praised the nursery stating that “highly effective teaching by well-qualified, skilled and dedicated staff ensures that all children make outstanding progress in their learning and development” and “staff provide children with innovative and editing experiences which inspire their enjoyment, fun, learning and development”.

We have a very well-established team here at Cherubs Sutton. 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 joined Cherubs Nurseries in 2020. I have worked in childcare for almost 20 years, 14 of those in a management role. I have a BA (Hons) in Early Year’s alongside Leadership and Management and an Assessor Qualification. I have always been passionate about the early years and work hard to ensure that all children get the most out of their time at nursery.
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.
