Meet the Riverside Team

We are extremely proud of our dedicated nursery team at the Riverside Day Nursery. Each member of our nursery staff is highly skilled in all aspects of childcare and demonstrates a natural ability to care for babies and young children.

As well as qualified to a high level, all our DBS checked nursery staff undertake continuous in-house and external training to develop new skills, as well as refresher courses to update previous training.

Nikita Gomm

Nikita Gomm is our experienced Nursery Manager who manages the day-to-day running of the Riverside Day Nursery. Nikita joined us in 2017 from a nursery in a corporate location where she managed, and area-managed, eight of their settings, all of which were rated ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’ by Ofsted. Nikita has a Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership. Since joining the Riverside Nursery team, Nikita has initiated several meaningful and positive changes including developing and implementing our educational programme.

Nikita says: “Our educational programme has been carefully designed to enhance our children’s learning across the EYFS framework with lots of engaging and interactive topics. The programme is split across our three age groups, Babies, Toddlers and Pre-schoolers and include everything from super sensory play and fingers and thumbs for younger children to Jolly Phonics, Magical Maths and Silly Science for our older children. It’s proved a great success with the children’s progress, confidence and all-round readiness for really school particularly apparent in this year’s graduates.”

Outside of nursery, Nikita has two children and a bouncy cockerpoo keeping her on her toes!
