Senior Staff liase frequently with the Nursery Managers, Deputies and appraisals occur regularly. They can be identified by a different coloured uniform and their name badges.

All senior staff are qualified Nursery Practitioners with a SVQ level 3 in Childcare, or HNC in Childcare and Education. 

The Nursery Support Workers are also dedicated and are sensitive to the needs of the individual children. They have a range of experience, some possessing other qualifications, however they are getting trained for the Level 3 (SVQ).

Staff are encouraged to participate in courses and further their professional development by attending our monthly training from our sister company One Step Access Training Company. We require all staff to have Child Protection Training.

The Nursery operates a key person system. A key person has special responsibilities for working with a small number of children, giving them the reassurance to feel safe and cared for and building relationships with their parents.

Notice boards in each room help identify the whereabouts of staff.

The Nursery is staffed according to the numbers of children present. The ratio of staff to children is as follows:

1:3 for babies/toddlers 3 months – 2 years
1:5 for children 2 years – 3 years
1:8 for children 3 years – 5 years.
