Our Staff

  • Nursery Manager
    Veronica Savill

    I am a qualified teacher holding the Certificate in Early Years Education. I went straight into teaching after qualifying in 1972 working in a Primary School as Head of the Infant Department. I have three grown-up children and prior to working at Loughborough College I worked in a smaller nursery in Derby. I started working at Loughborough College in 1995 and was responsible for setting up the Radmoor Nursery which opened in January 1996.

    As the demand for different types of childcare grew we have since developed two out of school clubs, a morning club and a holiday club.

    I take great pleasure in seeing each and every child from such an early age grow and develop their own personalities knowing that my team of dedicated practitioners have played such an important part in their early years development. I also enjoy the partnership that is built with families and appreciate the trust that they put in us in sharing their child’s development. I am now a Grandma to Joshua who enjoys attending the Baby Room. I am fortunate being so close to him in his early years development.
