About our staff


Our fun loving team have years of experience between them.

We pride ourselves on our consistency of staffing, many of our team have been working in the nursery since its opening

The aim of our work is to provide an enabling environment, which is safe, has a purpose behind the learning and  meets the needs of each individual.

Children are constantly growing and changing, with this in mind staff need to be well trained to suit their learning and developmental needs to meet with the  Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum’s requirements.

The nursery management arrange team training days to ensure that the quality of the nursery is consistent throughout.

Staff are trained through the Services for Children and Young People on Safeguarding, First Aid, Food Hygiene, Health and Safety and other relevant training throughout the year.

Each child has a nominated Key Carer, who is responsible for maintaining developmental records and being a link between home and nursery.
