Our Team

Research tells us that young children do best when educators are well qualified. Therefore leaders of this daycare are qualified to level 6 holding Early childhood studies degree or have Early Years Professional status. All other staff are qualified to level 3/4 and working to higher qualifications. There is a unique desire within the team to further our own professional development, and as such many of us continue to regularly train and update existing training. All staff attend regular first aid training, eSafety training, food safety and Safeguarding training. Natasha and Diane and Eleanor are Designated Safeguarding leads.
