Meet the Directors

Christine Nelson – Director

Hello, I’m Chris, the Director of our childcare centre, and I run this business alongside my husband, Tony. I have always been passionate about providing children with a comforting and nurturing environment. With three grown-up children of our own—Matthew, Richard, and Michael—and seven beautiful grandchildren—Freddie, Marley, Maci, Orlaith, Lennox, Maeve, and Reeva—I have experienced first-hand the joys and challenges of motherhood and grandparenthood.

Over the years, I have worked in various nurseries, gaining valuable experience and knowledge. However, I could offer a more comforting and personalized environment by creating a childcare centre in our home. This led us to establish our business, which has grown from strength to strength.

As the Director, I focus on each child’s individual needs. I hold an NVQ Level 3 qualification and am First Aid trained, ensuring that I can provide the highest standard of care and safety. Drawing from my experience as a mother and grandmother, I bring a deep understanding of the love and attention children need to thrive.

I love what we do at our centre and enjoy working in our lovely, caring, and homely environment. I am excited to meet you and your children, welcome them into our centre, and provide them with the nurturing and loving care they deserve.

Tony Nelson – Director

I’m Tony, Chris’s husband and also a Director of our childcare business. Before joining this endeavour, I spent several years serving as a soldier and paratrooper in the British Army, where I learned the values of discipline, teamwork, and dedication. After leaving the service, my career transitioned from manufacturing to retail.

I successfully ran my video rental shop and later took on senior positions with more giant corporations. However, the demands of these roles often kept me away from home for extended periods. Recognizing the importance of being present for our family, I decided to join Chris in the childcare business.

Within our business, I oversee business management and procurement, ensuring that our operations run smoothly and efficiently. My experience in various industries has equipped me with valuable skills in organization, problem-solving, and strategic planning, all of which contribute to the success of our centre.

Working alongside my wife, Chris has been a rewarding experience, and together we strive to create a nurturing and enriching environment for every child in our care.

We are proud of the team we have built and the warm, welcoming environment we have cultivated at our centre. We look forward to meeting you and your children and providing them with the highest quality care, support, and educational opportunities.

Join us at Chris’s Childcare, where your children will be embraced as part of our family and receive the care and attention they deserve. We can’t wait to welcome you into our loving and supportive community.
