About The Nursery

Leadership Team

Heléna Strachan

Managing Director

Heléna, who owns the nursery, wanted somewhere that offers families the happy, safe and carefree environment that her own children experienced at home, thus Sweet Peas was born.

We are passionate about building a sincere relationship with parents and carers based on trust, honesty and openness. We have a respectful understanding of how important this partnership is in sharing one another’s knowledge of your child to meet their individual needs.
