Shamley Green Nursery

Castle Nursery in Shamley Green opened in 2002; we are a 39 place rural day nursery situated in the grounds of Wonersh & Shamley Green Primary School. We have a single storey building with disabled access and two equipped rooms, one for the under two’s and one for the over two’s. We have direct access into the outdoors areas from both rooms with the over two’s having free flow indoors and outdoors access to a digging area, willow den, growing area, mud Kitchen, sand and water play. There is also a large sand pit, role play house, trim trail and a variety of gross motor equipment on a safety surface area. We are fortunate to have a woodland environment nearby which encourages a variety of wildlife into the area and a forest school, where the children can explore and experiment following their curiosity and ideas in a natural environment.

    Early childhood education and care has always been very important to me and a job I love. This grew even more when I had my own two children. There is nothing like having two children of your own go through child care settings to really put into focus the incredible responsibility and importance of our roles. My love of early years and parenting is what drives me to ensure we are delivering quality to the children in our settings. I commenced the role of Regional Manager for Childcare & Learning Group in August 2018, having previously been the Area Manager since January 2016, after many years working as Manager at Castle Nursery & Preschool in Guildford at our Markenfield setting. During my time as manager, I completed my B.Ed. in Early Years and then went on to complete my Masters in Early Years. For the Castle group of nurseries, I am the Regional Manager directly responsible for our Markenfield and Shamley Green settings.
