Our Staff

The manager and all of the assistants hold relevant childcare qualifications and all our staff have current first aid certificates. There are five members of staff at each session giving a ratio of one member of staff to six children – well above the recommended ratio – and additional assistance is offered for children with additional needs. All staff have had Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks prior to commencing employment. Each member of staff has a duty of co-ordinator for all areas of learning on a rolling annual plan.
