We know that our most valuable resource is our staff team; the most important factor in any nursery is the level of interactions between members of staff and the children and we want our staff to be proud to be part of our team. We only recruit staff members who are well qualified, in both academic qualifications and/or experience and they are all passionate about working with children. We have a variety of ages within our staff team, as we know that children and parents all relate to different people and their life experiences.
We are not ‘filling an empty vessel’ here, we are ‘lighting a fire’ and we want to be part of the beginning of a life-long love of learning. Our teachers will work closely with you to help your child to be to be challenged, stimulated and loved.
All our staff members enjoy on-going professional development and are expected to attend a number of training sessions each year. They are all qualified in paediatric first aid and we are been awarded Millie’s Mark for excellence in first aid for nurseries, which shows how important we think this part of our practice is. See www.milliesmark.co.uk for more information.
All staff members hold an enhanced DBS check as part of our safer recruitment processes.
