Job Title: Nursery Manager
"Hello, I'm Liam, Nursery Manager at Cherubs Sutton in Ashfield. I first got into childcare eight years ago after wanting to become a Primary School teacher. I started working in day nurseries to gain some experience and ended up loving it so much that I've never left the childcare sector. The one thing I enjoy most about my role is the fact that every day is totally different, there are new challenges and the sector is forever changing, which excites me. If I had to describe my experience with Cherubs Nurseries in three words I would say it's been busy, challenging and rewarding. During my time with Cherubs Nurseries I have been lucky enough to manage two of their Ofsted "Outstanding" nurseries and I am excited to now be based at our newest addition, Cherubs Sutton in Ashfield, with all the new and exciting challenges that will bring."
