Leadership Team

Our leadership team is dedicated to providing the best in childcare and early learning experiences for all our children.

Fisherfield Childcare was established in 1996 and the founders, Nicky and David MacGill, are parents to three sons. Nicky has many years of practical experience and holds a degree in Early Years and David was previously a business manager.  Together their passion, skills, drive and investment in amazing staff, enables Fisherfield Childcare to provide excellent care to children and to give them the best possible start in life.

This winning formula develops a childcare plan which includes:

  • Early years foundation stage curriculum
    • personal and social development
    • communication and language
    • literacy and mathematics
    • understanding of the world
    • physical development
  • in purpose built enabling environments
  • by caring, nurturing qualified staff

“In everything we do, we try to make a difference, we are proud of our team’s dedication to provide the best in childcare and early learning experiences. We value and build strong links with the children and their parents/carers to enable each child to excel. It is our honour and privilege to have the child in our care.Nicky MacGill



The importance of the quality of childcare is paramount and as clear to me as it was 25 years ago. We recruit and train people with a nurturing aptitude to develop, encourage and enable positive experiences to the children in our care. Fisherfield Childcare has invested in purpose built nurseries, each equipped with fantastic facilities led by highly qualified caring empoyees.

We recruit our team carefully and invest in their continuing professional development and share best practice across all our sites. Everyone is trained in safeguarding, paediatrics, and first aid certification as minimum standards. But this is just a small part of what we do to increase skill levels – in addition, we invest heavily in extra training in many other areas..” David MacGill
