Our Staff

All staff members are first aid trained and all NVQ’s are in childcare, learning and development.  Our staff are committed to continual development and they regularly attend courses, to ensure that we offer our children the best care and education. Our membership of the Pre-school Learning Alliance ensures that we are constantly in touch with new thinking in the field of education and care.

Our Pre-school uses a key person approach.  This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom they are particularly responsible.  Upon starting at the Pre-school, your child will be allocated a key person.  You will be introduced to your child’s key person when your child starts, if not before.  Your child will belong to one of the following groups: Piglets (2-3 years) or Lambs (3-5 years).  Your child’s key person will be the person who works with you to make sure that what we provide is right for your child’s particular needs and interests. Throughout your child’s time at the Pre-school, their key person will help your child to benefit from the Pre-school’s curriculum.  The key person works with parents to ensure that all children are supported in reaching their full potential.
