Meet the Cheddar Team

Bobby Baldwin (Manager)

Hi, Im Bobby and I’m the Nursery Manager at Little Adventures Nursery. I I hold a level five foundation degree in early years and I have 10 years experience working with children aged six weeks to 5 years. I have worked into previous nursery settings where I have experienced a variety of job roles within the early years sector and worked my way up from an apprentice to management as well as safeguarding officer inclusion coordinator , first-aider and fire officer. I believe all children learn through play and benefit from a stimulating and exciting environment where they are given plenty of opportunities to develop and progress. 

I live in Wedmore with my partner and dog. In my spare time I enjoy dog walks, shopping and watching films.
