Quality childcare is dependent on quality staff. We are committed to fostering a happy, skilled and loyal Pre-School team in a working environment where they can attain their full potential — ensuring that we maintain a good standard of childcare provision. All our staff hold a recognised National Vocational Qualification level 3 in Early Years Childcare and Development and Play work. We are committed to giving all the staff training and support in the latest developments in childcare. All our staff regularly receive training in Safer Food Handling, Paediatric First Aid, Emergency Evacuation Procedures, Safeguarding and Child Protection.
Pre-School Setting Manager
We understand how important the staff in our Pre-School are to you and your child. Our Pre-School Manager is a qualified, skilled and experienced Early Years Practitioner. The Manager is responsible for the Pre–School team and the day to day running of the establishment. Supporting the Manager is a qualified Deputy. All persons working directly with the children hold an enhanced DBS ( previously criminal records disclosure).
We greatly welcome and appreciate the support of volunteers and a number of parents are able to fulfil the role of a ‘Parent Helper’ on a regular basis. Volunteers and students work alongside the staff to provide the best quality of care. It gives parents an opportunity to be part of their child’s Pre-School care and education.
Parent Management Committee
The Pre-School is managed by a Committee of volunteers & pre-school parents/carers. The committee relies on new members joining each year and encourages every parent to attend meetings. Joining the pre-school committee can be a fun and rewarding experience and is a great way to meet new people, to really make a difference and be involved in your child’s early education and development. We encourage and welcome all interested parents/carers to contact us to discuss the possibility of joining the Committee.
