Meet the team

Green Dragon Nursery was set up and is owned by John Constantinou. We opened in February 2010 with the intention of trying to provide the best setting possible.

All staff have been trained in Child Protection and are checked by the Disclosure Barring Service as part of our recruitment process. Staff regularly renew and develop their training, attending courses on paediatric first aid, health & safety, safeguarding, special educational needs and behaviour management.
