Amy Craddock, Nursery Manager at The Old School

Hello there,

My name is Amy, and I joined The Old School as Deputy Manager in July 2017. I took on full management of the nursery in July 2018.

I have worked in childcare for more than 12 years, 7 of which have been in management roles in other nursery settings.

I believe in providing children with open-ended and imaginative resources which challenge their thinking and develop their potential. At The Old School, I have worked with our team and our parents to create inviting and homely environments for children to spend their days in.

We’re always happy to show parents our nursery, so if you’d like to pop by, please arrange a visit.

Nikki-Lea Kay, Deputy Manager at The Old School


My name is Nikki, and I joined The Old School in January 2016, starting my career in childcare as a Modern Apprentice with the group.

Since gaining my Level 3 qualification in childcare, I have progressed in my career and I am now in the role of Deputy Manager here at The Old School Day Nursery & Pre-school.

I thoroughly enjoy my job and take pride in providing a stimulating learning environment for children. It is a privilege to be able to watch young children thrive, develop and learn new skills through the activities that we provide, and knowing that I have been a part of this growth is extremely rewarding.
