Nursery Directors – Emma Ward & Gary Ward
Emma and Gary originally set up Chiltern Nursery in Sutton in 2002 as they were unable to find a nursery that they liked for their own son. Fast forward a few years later they are now the directors of three nurseries.
Emma and Gary are very hands on, and spend time at all the settings during the week.
