About the employer

Caterpillars’ nursery is a small independent nursery which has been established by claire Robinson since 2006. In this time claire has built up the business with the support of an excellent staff team. We have currently relocated the business to the Codsall area, and the business has gone from strength to strength. Caterpillars’ aspirations for the future is to continuing to keep children and families happy with the service we provide and putting the children and families need first. We have no aspirations to grow our business in size as we feel a smaller setting can maintain an excellent standard of care and education for the children, but we certainly have aspirations to grow our reputation on continuing to put our children and families first.
