About the employer
Enchanted Day Nursery and Holiday Club was established in October 2016.
The nursery directors (Adele and Carly) have over 30 years combined experience working within early years.
After meeting during our previous roles as Manger and Deputy, we struggled to fully implement our ideas, as the nursery was not our own. We both have the same values and wanted to create a nursey where the children and families are at the heart of our business.
We chose the name "Enchanted" for our nursery as we wanted to create a magical place where children can learn and develop the necessary skills for future learning and school readiness.
