About Us

Carousel was opened in 1992 by Bev Joyner and her mother Vera. Bev’s sister Jacqui then joined the family business in 2000. Bev and Jacqui have five children between them, so are acutely aware of the diverse needs of individual children and the importance of recruiting the right staff to cater for those needs. In fact we now have the next generation of our family at Carousel because Bev’s daughter, Katharine, has joined the business as our new manager, and her baby girl is now one of our Ducklings. We are very proud of the whole nursery team, the welcoming environment they provide and most importantly, the standard of care and education the children enjoy at Carousel.

Carousel’s specially modified bungalow, situated in a quiet residential street in the east of Billericay, has been designed to accommodate just over thirty children each day aged from 3 months to 5 years. Organised over four areas, our Lower Nursery Ducklings & Hedgehogs Rooms care for infants and toddlers aged 3mths to 2yrs and our Upper Nursery Rabbits & Pre-School Squirrels Rooms provide care and education for children 2yrs+ to rising 5's.

Carousel has 'grown up' over the almost thirty years that we have been practising, experiencing lots of changes both in the dynamics of our nursery and pre-school as well as in the legislation that governs our business. We are very experienced practitioners who are proud to have provided high quality childcare to some of the now young adults of Billericay. These 'old boys and girls' are now starting to return to us with their own children.
