OUR TEAM

Each of our team members has undergone a secure recruitment process and participated in an extensive induction period to guarantee they align perfectly with the values and requirements of our nursery. All of our employees must possess qualifications such as an enhanced DBS, Level 3 Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding, Food and Hygiene, Female Genital Mutilation, and The Prevent Duty. Additionally, we consistently enroll our practitioners in external courses and conduct monthly internal courses to keep their knowledge current.

Our team is comprised of dedicated individuals who are deeply passionate about their roles and fully committed to upholding our 'home from home' philosophy in every aspect.
