MEET THE TEAM 

Nursery Manager 
Harvey Kalsi 
 
I've worked with children for the last 17 years and opened Cherry Tree Nurseries in December 2007. 
 
I have a great passion for working with children and their families and always strive to get the best outcomes for the children, their families and my team. I want the nursery to feel like a home away from home, while maintaining good learning and development opportunities for the children. 
Deputy Manager

I am the Deputy Manager and the Quality Improvement Officer, currently on maternity leave. I have a level 3 qualification and am studying at Warwick University towards my Foundation degree in Childhood Studies. 
 
What I enjoy most is being able to provide opportunities for learning and play a key part in each child’s development. A big part of my work is to support staff in their learning and development to maintain and improve standards across the nursery.

I am Harvey’s mum. I have my food hygiene certificate and have been a cook for the last 6 years.
