Our Staff

Childrens work

We are very proud that our staff are extremely dedicated, caring and hard working. We are lucky that most of them are parents whose own children attended our pre-school and we feel that this experience helps the way in which we deal with the children, support each other and work as a team with the Committee.

In addition we have a couple of members of staff who have been employed by us directly from college whose experience also adds greatly to our pre-school.

At present we have 11 members of teaching staff plus an Admin Officer who deals with the Waiting List, Fees and Fundings. This enables us to work at a ratio of 1:5 over 3s and 1:4 under 3s. The Supervisor and two other members of staff hold a food safety certificate.

All staff are trained in Children’s First Aid and in the use of the epi-pen and attend a refresher course every three years. We have a Safeguarding Officer and as a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance we are committed to an on-going staff training programme.
