Mortlake Nursery

Working Mums Daycare & Pre-School Centre in Mortlake opened in 1992, we are a 54 place setting in a single storey converted Edwardian old school building, spoilt by our direct access to the outdoors for all age groups, making the outdoors a big feature of our nursery.
We have separate groups for under two year olds and over two year olds and also a preschool area for our children to take time out for some specific preschool activities and learning in their final year of nursery, to prepare them for the transition to school.
Our nursery also runs Forest School sessions for our pre-schoolers, where they take excursion to Wimbledon common and head to the woods to explore the outdoors, waterways and tree climbing too in a natural forest learning environment.
We are open 51 weeks of the year from 8am till 6pm with the additional option of breakfast club from 7.30am and evening club from 6 till 6.30pm

  • Louise Ashbee
      Louise AshbeeRegional Manager
    I began my career with Cranbrook Nursery & Preschool at Buttercup Barn in May 2000 as a Nursery Practitioner. I then moved to Ivy Cottage as a Deputy Manager and in 2002 I became the Manager. I moved over to Clover Court Nursery in 2010 and at the start of 2018 extended to London’s Working Mums’ East Sheen nursery where I supported during transition between managers. In August 2018, I was appointed Regional Manager for Childcare & Learning Group. My childcare journey began when I was 13 years old, having done a work experience in a Nursery. From that point I knew I wanted this to be my career and to make a difference in the start of a child’s life. I have a BA Hons in Childcare and Education. For the Working Mums’ group of nurseries, I am the Regional Manager directly responsible for our Mortlake and East Sheen settings.

      Jenny joined Working Mums’ in 1992 when the Mortlake setting opened and Working Mums Daycare & Preschool was established. She started off as cover staff after she left school, loved it and realised it was what she wanted to make a career out of. She progressively developed, becoming NVQ3 qualified in early childhood care and education, working with all ages of children and through leadership roles until she became Manager in 2014. Jenny introduced Forest School to Working Mums, being one of the first through the BTec Diploma in Forest School teaching, new to the UK at the time. Jenny has been instrumental in the development of Preschool sessions for children in the year before they go to school, receiving annual feedback from parents and reception teachers on the skills her leavers are taking to their reception classes.
