Amanda Barnes - Nursery Owner.
Hello my name is Amanda and I am the Owner of Pre-School Playhouse. I have worked in Childcare all my adult working life, It was always my passion to provide high quality childcare for pre-school children when I qualified as a Nursery Nurse in 1987. My dream came true when Pre-School Playhouse was established in 1994 and for the past 20 years I have continued to provide high quality childcare in a warm, caring and friendly environment where children play and learn in a safe and secure environment. I spent many years managing Pre-school Playhouse full time before my twin girls were born in 2005. I am still very hands on and continue to support the nursery team and families who attend the nursery. My twin girls attended the nursery before starting full time school and I truly believe the care and education they received during their four and half years attending Pre-School Playhouse helped them grow into confident, caring and inquisitive children who settled well into school life.
