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.

 
   
 

Testimonials

My daughter has enjoyed messy play, contact with other children, warm friendly staff, outdoor play and meal times.

I have had excellent feedback from all members of staff. I am always re-assured that my child is well cared for, content and happy.

Thank you to Lee Owen for introducing me to the nursery.

When asked "Do you think that the nursery represents value for money ?" Miss P said I have answered YES as I feel the nursery staff are highly educated in current activities, always expanding on every child’s potential and teaching useable future skills.

Miss P said that she would recommend the nursery to other families.
