Our Staff

We are proud of the high ratio of adults to children in our group.  This ensures individual attention to the needs and development of each child.

All staff are enhance DBS (formally known as CRB) checked in line with the group's Safeguarding Children Policy.

Training

Our membership of the Pre-School Learning Alliance ensures that we are constantly in touch with new thinking in the field of child education and care.  we receive a monthly magazine offering practical advice and up-to-date information and have access to a range of professional publications.  In addition, on-going training is available through P.S.L.A. courses, which welcome both staff and parents.

We ensure that we exceed government regulations when it comes to the number of First Aid trained staff on site.

Keyworkers

Our keyworker system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a few children.  Each child in the group has one adult to relate to, making settling into the group much easier.  In addition, the keyworker can provide information to tailor the group's curriculum to the needs of each child.  The keyworker maintains links with the child's home setting, working with parents to ensure all children are supported in reaching their full potential.

The regular staff in the group are:
