Meet the Team

At Fledglings we have a small team of experienced staff. Leading this team is Louise, who would be happy to speak or meet you to answer any questions you may have. The team has over 66 years experience between them and as a small, close team they work well together to ensure your child has a great experience with them.

The staff are friendly!, they keep you informed and are a real team! I like the fact it's small and intimate in one room, it means there's more interaction and better care. 

My boy absolutely loves coming here and we can't wait to return in September
