Qualifications

The majority of our Nursery Practitioners have at least a Level 3 NVQ qualification in childcare or are working towards it and several have gone on to obtain degrees and post graduate qualifications in Early Years subjects. All staff have undergone an enhanced DBS check and complete paediatric first aid and safeguarding training on a regular basis.

Staff provide a welcoming and exciting environment. Consequently, children are highly motivated to explore the wide range of interesting activities and resources on offer.
