About the employer

Crown Daisy Nursery operates from a well converted and imposing Victorian manor house and lodge filled with military history and character, with nearly three acres of formal and wild gardens, and ample parking. Our specialist Baby Lodge in the former coach house is hidden at the back of the grounds and is well equipped to be a secure cocoon for our littlest children, with easy access to their garden and space to sleep, eat, play and learn. Our Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers are spread across the first two floors of the manor house, with large, light rooms and much to explore. A library, art room, sensory space, and imagination area blend with the more traditional circle time and table top areas. The top floor is home to our head office team and our dedicated training suite helping us keep our standards consistently high and our knowledge up to date.
