Our staff

Staff qualifications range from those who are employed as Nursery Apprentices working towards their NVQ Level 2, Nursery Assistants working towards their NVQ Level 3 and management staff who have achieved their NVQ Level 4 or 5 in Childcare Management.

All staff are recruited and employed by Kiddies’ Cabin using an extensive vetting procedure which ensures that they are both suitable to work with children and have the necessary skills and personality so that the nursery meets the requirements of each child in our care.

Regular staff training is undertaken on paediatric first aid, food hygiene, safeguarding / child protection and fire safety training. These are updated on an annual or three yearly basis depending on the statutory requirements. Prior to commencing their employment with us, all staff attend a three day staff induction course held by the Trust. Staff receive regular developmental guidance to ensure that they continue to develop professionally and personally.

All staff attend Basic Life Support training with Paul McEndoo, the Trust's Community Resuscitation Facilitator every year.

Testimonials

Kiddies' Cabin staff has been most understanding and caring for E. They helped him through his orientation to group settings, listening to others and obeying rules. E has developed a lot on both behavioural and language skills as a result.

The staff have been most patient even when E was very upset on some days.

We believe the service is invaluable, E could not have developed better if he stayed with us alone all that time.

Kiddies' Cabin staff are lovely bunch, and they work through a curriculum. So, yes we strongly recommend.
