About Us

Here at Ready Set Grow Nursery we promise to nurture your child in a calm but stimulating environment. We will challenge your child’s learning while exploring our large outdoor area, we will inspire their curiosity when we introduce them to science, we will stretch their maths skills – and we’ll do it all through play! It has been found that the best way for children to learn is holistically. This is something we strongly believe and know that the best way of doing this is by following your child’s interests. Discovering those interests is a fun adventure that we hope you’ll take with us. A strong parent / carer relationship is important to us as you know your child better than anyone.

Who are we?


I’m Samantha and have been involved in childcare for over 25 years. As a parent, nursery assistant, early years educator and now a grandma! Over the years I have coached hundreds of children and adults in Taekwondo and now coach a very successful youth athletics team. 

I’m Francesca, I am the manager here at Ready Set Grow Nursery. In 2017 I became a new mother to a little boy. I am a passionate, energetic and creative person who loves to get involved and interact with the children at their level. I am very enthusiastic about children learning from experiences and I believe that it is my role to provide children with the opportunity to flourish. Additionally I am equally passionate about mentoring staff and supporting their development into becoming the best practitioner that they can be. For the past 8 years I have gained experience by working with children in their home environment as well as in nursery/ school settings, two years of which I have been a leader and mentor to staff. Alongside this, I continued my professional development by completing my NVQ Childcare level 3 and my BA Honours in Education and Curriculum studies. As well as opening and working in the nursery and raising my son, I am currently studying for my Masters Degree in Professional Practice and Education at Northumbria University with 2 years completed.
