Our Staff

A nursery is only as good as its staff… we choose our staff carefully. Qualifications are important to us, but so is experience, warmth, a sense of humour, liking children helps too!

Our setting employs more level three trained practitioners than level two.

Our senior management team has accumulated over fifty year’s worth of experience in childcare:

Our Nursery Manager has 16 years experience of working in a nursery and leading nurseries to ‘outstanding’ Ofsted judgements. She is qualified to level five (Foundation Degree in Childhood Studies).

Our Deputy Manager has 9 years of experience and is trained to level three in management and has received training in team leading.

Our Senior Practitioner has 10 years of experience and is trained to a level three NVQ.

Another one of our senior practitioners has 16 years experience of working in a nursery and is qualified to a level five (Foundation Degree in Childhood Studies).

Everyone applying for a job in our nursery will be observed working with children during the interview phase of their recruitment, and we only hire people with the same philosophy and commitment to quality as us.

We allocate every child a key worker from their first day. The key worker responds to a child’s individual needs and carries out regular observations to support learning. Every child has their own folder that contains their story, this includes observations, WOW moments, photographs, examples of art work they have done and any other information that we think you might find of interest.

Staff complete long, medium and short term planning that is appropriate for the ability of the child in their care. These are evaluated on a daily basis and the quality of the planning reviewed by our nursery management team. Once you start with us please don’t be afraid to ask to see your child’s folder, we maintain it but it belongs to you and your child.

Our parent’s evenings are held every 6 months.

We also work closely with local schools to help children’s transition into primary school. We have meetings with staff from our local schools to help ensure that transition from our nursery to school is as seamless as possible.
