Nursery manager Grace Figheldean


Nursery Practitioner Salisbury Emily Figheldean

Senior Manager

I joined the Brambles team in March 2014, and have been at Figheldean ever since moving through as deputy manager, manager and now senior manager.


I have had many years of experience in Early years in a variety of settings and gained my Ba Hons in Primary Practice at Winchester university while being a practitioner.

I am passionate about treating people as individuals meeting the needs of our families and my wonderful team at Figheldean as well as the wider Brambles family in my new role. The children are the heart of what we do here at Brambles.

During my childhood we were a military family living in many countries but now my family and I have put down roots in Wiltshire. At home my boyfriend and I live in the heart of Amesbury and are hoping to adopt a dog soon!

I love working with children watching them explore new activities, grow and develop. I have worked in a variety of different settings who have used different approaches to learning.


In my spare time I enjoy going for walks out in the New Forest, baking lots of yummy goodies and I love to sew making various creations. I have recently learnt how to make children’s clothes. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to make my own wardrobe!!
