Hello and thank you for viewing our website
A warm welcome from the Nursery Manager
I have worked in Early Years for 12 years; since leaving school. At first I volunteered at a local nursery and this enabled me to realise that I had a passion for working with children. At an early age I obtained my ASA Level 1 and 2 Swimming Instructor Qualifications and worked part-time teaching swimming to children aged 3-11. This encouraged me further to pursue a career working with children.
I then went on to complete my BA (Hons) in Childcare and Education before continuing to gain my Early Years Teacher Status at Reading University.
I joined The Wigwam in July 2017 as the Preschool Room Leader and thoroughly enjoyed my time in that role. I have been lucky enough to further my career in the Deputy Manager role and now as Manager. I look forward to what the future brings!
& from the Owners
We are the husband and wife team, who have owned the Wigwam Day Nursery since September 2017.
Eamonn looks after the business side of things, while Urvashi, a highly qualified Early Years practitioner (Early Years, BA), focuses on ensuring our nursery maintains the highest standards.
Prior to acquiring Wigwam, we built a nursery business from scratch in Chiswick, West London. The quality of this setting was recently recognised by an Outstanding rating from Ofsted.
Our ethos is to develop a culture of continuous improvement, investing in our staff and creating a happy, well qualified and motivated team. This in turn creates a happy environment, where your child can grow and develop. We know if our children are happy, our parents will be happy.

We are always keen to hear from parents and available to chat in person at a time which suits you, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
