Day Nursery & Pre-school Provision in Derby
Meet the team
My name is Olivia and I am delighted to be the Nursery Manager here at Thornhill Day Nursery.
I have been working with children for around 20 years and have 2 children of my own; George and Amelia.
After achieving my qualification in Early Years, I found a passion for creating nursery environments and supporting children’s development through working in a day nursery. This prompted me to take the opportunity of going to university where I studied Early Childhood Development further and gained a BA (hons) degree before having my children back in 2009.
I quickly realised that I had an ambition to make a difference in children’s lives. I soon found myself supporting a management team to create positive and enabling environments for children where they could learn through play and develop at their individual stages.
Joining Thornhill Day Nursery has been an incredible experience and with the ethos of Tommies Childcare aligning with my own, I am really excited to work in partnership with you and your children.
You are welcome to speak with me at any time if you have any questions. Better still, you are more than welcome to arrange a consultation with me via Zoom here.
My name is Amie, and I am the Deputy Manager here at Thornhill Day Nursery.
Thornhill is a spectacular nursery and is like nowhere I have ever worked before. Calming environments have been created for the children, allowing them to explore in a place that feels safe.
I have more than 20 years of experience working in childcare, and it is a sector that I am genuinely passionate about. I have three children of my own; therefore, I understand the experience that parents go through when trying to find the right nursery for their child.
I am here, along with the rest of the Thornhill team, to support and guide you as your child starts their early years’ journey.
Thornhill is a nursery full of play, laughter, fun and lots of learning along the way. Why not come and see the nursery for yourself by arranging a visit?
Thornhill is the newest setting to join the Tommies Childcare family. The entire building has recently undergone an extensive renovation and extension, making it the flagship nursery in the city of Derby. Our team here have taken to the delivery of the Tommies Childcare approach and ethos very well.
This can be seen in the fantastic environments on offer at the setting, whereby children are encouraged to learn through resources and environments that are calm and considerate to the ways in which children learn.
All of our employees 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.
