Meet the Team
Dedicated & Qualified
A big "hello" from the team at the Coigne Nursery! We are experienced early years practitioners with qualifications in childcare (NVQ 3) and early years teaching. We all hold paediatric first aid certificates, are DBS checked and hold the relevant level of Safeguarding training.
We are a dedicated, friendly and fun team who have worked together for several years. We enjoy being out and about in our spare time, dog walking, cycling, horse riding and gardening.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our nursery!

Meet The Coigne Committee
Chair: Sarah Atkins
I joined the Coigne Committee in 2019 as the Safeguarding Officer whilst two of my sons were attending the nursery. My youngest is still there and absolutely loves it. I was elected to be Chair in June 2020 & am delighted to be able to continue supporting the Coigne nursery in everything they do.
Secretary: Alice Banks
I joined the Coigne as Secretary in June 2020 whilst both my children were attending the nursery. I am really pleased to be a member of the committee and to support the staff in their running of this fantastic nursery.
Treasurer: Jim Coubrough
I joined the Coigne Committee 5 years ago after moving to Minchinhampton to be closer to my daughter's family in Amberley. I attend the Baptist Church here & was invited to join having previously been the treasurer of another charity for 20 years.
I joined the Coigne Committee in 2019 as the elected Chair whilst my youngest son was attending the nursery. With my son starting school in 2020 I have stepped down from the position of Chair, but am keen to continue supporting the nursery & the amazing work they do.
