OUR TEAM

We require all of our staff to have an enhanced DBS, Level 3 Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding, Food and Hygiene, Female Genital Mutilation and The Prevent Duty qualifications and we regularly send practitioners on external courses and provide monthly internal courses to refresh and update their knowledge.

 

Our staff make up a fantastic team, who are all extremely passionate about their roles and are dedicated to following our ‘home from home’ ethos in all aspects. Our floor manager and deputy manager are on site at all times to support room leaders and all other staff to ensure the smooth day to day running of the nursery.

Meet our management team:
