A little bit about us

Kids rule

Chestnuts is a small group of day nurseries in Gloucester. The first nursery located in Longlevens was established in 2003 by two school friends who wanted to create a nursery that offered outstanding care and learning experiences where they would be happy to leave their own children.

The following year, the nursery was awarded Best New Nursery in the UK by Nursery Management Today. Six years and five of their own children later, a second nursery was opened in Barnwood offering the same exceptional standards. A third setting in Quedgeley is now open.
