Nursery Manager at Arbury

Hi there,

My name is Tej Bhatt, and I am the Nursery Manager here at Arbury Day Nursery.

My passion and motivation to provide the best start for children and families started when I became a mother to my lovely sons. During my 17+ year career in the nursery world, I have had the opportunity to develop my understanding of what outstanding childcare looks like, particularly after earning my Early Years degree.

I have supported my teams in delivering a high standard of care, and was delighted to learn that Tommies Childcare shares the same values as I. I am delighted to be joining a dedicated team and look forward to continuing to build upon the nursery environment at Arbury, which enables your child’s learning and development.

We’re always happy for parents and families to visit us, so book your visit to Arbury today and I’d be delighted to give you a tour and introduce you to our team.

Deputy Manager at Arbury


My name is Sam, and I joined Arbury Day Nursery in June 2023.

I have over 20 years of experience working in the childcare sector and was a Deputy Manager at my previous setting before moving here.

I have always been dedicated to working with children and have sound knowledge and understanding of SEND, an area I’m additionally passionate about.

Growing up, I always wanted to work with children and believed that a childcare setting should be like a child’s second family or home. Making children feel safe and secure while having fun, being playful, expressing themselves, and feeling confident enough to be their authentic selves is vital. I believe this is precisely what we offer here at Arbury.

I enjoy observing children grow into confident and resilient young people ready to start the next chapter of their lives. Why not come and see for yourself by arranging a visit to look around? We would love to meet you.

Rest of the Team at Arbury

Arbury is supported by a team of 10 Nursery Practitioners who are all passionate about working with children in the early years sector. All staff have Paediatric First Aid Training and receive regular and ongoing training through a variety of internal and external professional development opportunities.

Our commitment guarantees that our employees are the best of the best, recruiting those who have a desire to make a difference to children and are passionate about the early years as a career choice.

In 2016 the team helped the nursery maintain their ‘Good’ Ofsted grading. In the report, Ofsted acknowledged that, “Staff get to know children and their families well. They are kind, caring and friendly. Staff are also sensitive to meeting children’s care needs. Children are settled, happy and content. They demonstrate that they enjoy attending”.

This is evident in the number of company awards that the setting has received.

  • Nursery Manager of the Year (2019): Anna Biddlestone
  • Outstanding Nursery Practitioner (2019): Allease Wall
  • Innovative Environments Award (2018): Toddler Room

Some of the team at Arbury have been at the setting for over 5 years. This has helped to provide consistency for the children, and we recognise how important familiar faces are for parents as well. Our longest serving staff are:

  • Allease Wall (Toddler Room)
  • Danielle Woolaston (Pre-school Room)
  • Hannah Cooper (Pre-school Room)
