Atelier Nursery is to open a second branch in Chippenham next Spring. The new nursery will be based at the old URC Church in Emery Lane, which will enable the team to offer care and education to 80 children aged four months to five years per day. Clare Crowther from Atelier explained, “The building lends itself to our free flow and mixed age approach which we look forward to embedding within a new community. Works begin onsite next week and once completed we look forward to welcoming families across to share in any developments.”

Clare explained that she and Beth will continue to lead practice in Bath for the immediate future, with Clare moving across to Chippenham to establish the early set up in the Spring. “Having won the award of Nursery of the Year in September the opportunity to open our second site is the end to a perfect year! We are so lucky with our senior staff team and early years practitioners that we are sure the consistency and support both to parents and their children in Bath will not be impacted on.”

Open Days for the new nursery will be announced in February, giving families the chance to see the new facilities for themselves.

As part of the new development, Atelier Nursery is looking for people to join its team in Bath and Chippenham, with the positions available including Senior Early Years Practitioners, Early Years Practitioners and Early Years Assistants.
