Leadership Team

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

Since its establishment in 1996, Fisherfield Childcare has grown to become a leading childcare provider, thanks to the dedication and hard work of its founders, Nicky and David MacGill. As parents to three sons, they understood the importance of nurturing and providing quality care for children during their crucial early years.

Nicky’s extensive practical experience and her degree in Early Years education laid a solid foundation for the nurseries approach to child development and care. Her genuine passion for working with children, combined with David’s background as a skilled business manager, brought a perfect balance of expertise to the venture.

Over the years, Fisherfield Childcare has thrived, attracting devoted and talented staff who shared the founders’ vision. The MacGills’ investment in these incredible individuals has been key to the nurseries ability to provide exceptional care and give children the best possible start in life.

In 2022, a significant milestone marked a new chapter in Fisherfield Childcare’s history. As the founders took a step back in the day to day running of the business, their eldest son Peter MacGill assumed the role of CEO, continuing the family legacy with immense pride and dedication. Peter grew up witnessing the genuine love and commitment his parents poured into the business, inspiring him to follow in their footsteps. Under Peter’s guidance, Fisherfield Childcare continues to maintain its reputation for excellence.
