OUR STAFF TEAM

We pride ourselves on our dedicated conscientious team of staff. The Manager and Deputy Manager head the nursery supported by Nursery Officers and Nursery Assistants, all of whom offer the children continuity of care through the Keyperson system. This allows the staff to utilise their skills and expertise; enabling them to be responsive to the individual needs of the children in their care, whilst working closely with parents for the benefit of the child. We ensure our staff team are given training to keep up with the ever-changing standards in caring for children. This will include Curriculum Planning, Child Protection, First Aid, and numerous other H&S training as well as education and care.
