Staff training

Staff access training sessions throughout the year which enable them to enhance their professional development. As well as those attending college or university days to gain their qualifications, all staff will have training sessions for safeguarding children, inclusion within the setting, first aid, behaviour management, fire/health and safety and manual handling.

Staff thrive from accessing training sessions provided In house, by the NHS or Local Authority.



We are relocating to London due to a job change which is why A is leaving the nursery.

She improved a lot in her daily schedule. A goes to sleep early in the evening and has cereals/toast as breakfast every morning. She is much braver than before and confidently speaks to everyone. Thank you to the whole "Jack In The Box" team and their continuous efforts. A will miss all.

Special thanks to Carly. Because of her continuous efforts, A is now following a schedule which was missing previously. Thank you Carly once again.
