Cholderton Outdoor Nursery Team





Manager & Designated Safeguarding Lead

Hello, I am Cheryl

I am a trained teacher and graduated from Winchester University in 2015 with BA Hons in Primary education. After completing my first in school I quickly realised that my passion lies within Early Years. After teaching EYFS for several years I had my son, Charlie and then in 2021, I joined the Brambles family. I began my Brambles Journey as Deputy Manager and SENCo at Cholderton and have since become Manager of Cholderton and I am also the Senior Manager across the 5 settings.


I love watching the children develop in a nurturing environment and getting to know them and their families. I really enjoy working outside and the benefits it brings both the children and adults for their wellbeing.


I love being creative and sharing ideas with the other managers and their teams around how we can develop our settings further. Family events such as Cheese and Wine night and Bramblebury are my favourite and I really enjoy being part of the planning process to ensure that everyone has the most amazing time!


When I am not at work, I love nothing more than spending time with my family, going swimming or for long walks. I also enjoy going on holiday and visiting different parts of the world.

Deputy Manager 

Hi, My name is Clare and for the last 20 years I have worked within Investment Banking in a number of different roles but more recently within senior management positions. I have two children and play, creating games and developing activities for them, I find hugely rewarding and FUN! I have known for a long time now that I wanted to work within education, in particular the Early Years. Watching children learn and seeing their personalities develop is what I love the most.

In my spare time I love spending time with my husband and children. Long walks, movie days, crafts and going out with friends are all things which keep me happy and relaxed.
