Geoff - Operations Director
Having spent over 20 years in Operations and Project Management I have worked long hours away from my family and it has taught me how important a quality childcare facility is. Joining Camelot in 2015 was an easy choice for me as my son had spent the previous 3 years here and had gone from strength to strength in that time. It is so wonderful to see the work we are doing having a real impact on the lives of the local children and their families, and I couldn’t wish for a more dedicated and passionate team to work with.

Lucie - Arthur's Senior
Hello, I’m Lucie and I have been working at Camelot since September 2013. I have a Level 3 qualification in Childcare Learning and Development and have been working with a variety of ages for just over 5 years. I really enjoy building special relationships with the children and parents within the nursery. Looking after peoples most precious gifts is something that involves a large amount of trust and having a fantastic bond with both children and parents helps them to feel comfortable and thrive while at nursery. The favourite part of my day is when the children make me laugh, as individuals they all have such amazing personalities, which makes Arthur’s so much fun and pleasure to lead.

I really enjoy setting up activities and making the day as fun as possible for them. The one thing I love about Arthur's class is they really take in everything you teach them and you really see their personalities shine through at this age.
