About Us


We opened Charlestown Day Nursery in April, 1989.  It only seems like yesterday when my own daughter was just 2 years old and my reason for opening my own nursery.  In 1993 we opened Paddington side of the nursery making us 90 places.

In 2004 Victoria side evolved.  We extended our nursery care to before & after School Club and Holiday Club.  The nursery has gone from strength to strength.

My caring & committed staff have gained us a reputation for providing high standards of childcare & education for children.  All staff are level 3, 4 and 5 qualified in Children’s care learning and development and all staff have training in First Aid and Child protection so you can be assured your children remain safe whilst in our care.

The nursery resides in a modern purpose building with excellent, well equipped gardens.  We have a large indoor Rainy Day Room giving us extra indoor space for those really wet cold days and also for physical activities such as music and movement, dance and football.

We offer a safe, caring and stimulating environment for all children between the ages of 3 months up to 11 year olds.

Our excellent caring service can be tailor made to meet individual families’ needs.  The nursery is owned by myself, Gill Winterbottom.  I have a fantastic nursery manager, Debbie Pickles and we make a brilliant team.

Debbie has been part of  Charlestown since 1990 and has over 30 years experience of working with children within a nursery environment. Debbie holds NNEB, NVQ level 4 in Children’s Care and Development, SENCO Level 1 and 2, First Aid and Safeguarding Children,

So if you want the best start in life for your child, please come and see for yourself what Charlestown has to offer.  We look forward to meeting you soon.

Gill Winterbottom.
