Our Team


Child looking at globeOur well qualified, committed and experienced team work hard to create a caring and learning environment in the nursery. We know that every child develops differently and at different times. Every child has a key person who understands their individual needs and interests. This helps us to ensure that every child feels involved, stimulated and happy in our care.

We follow rigorous staff recruitment, selection and supervision procedures to ensure that anyone joining our team undertakes relevant security checks including Disclosure and Barring Service disclosure, references and qualification checks. Parents are reassured knowing that child protection and safeguarding underpins every aspect of our practice and will continue to remain a priority for us.

Your child's 'key person'

Every child who joins the nursery receives support from an experienced member of the team. They are responsible for your child’s individual needs and known as the ‘key person’. The key person is your main point of contact however all nursery staff are happy to feedback on your child’s developmental progress on a daily basis or discuss any concerns with you. They will also keep records of your child’s progress and achievement, which are always available for you to see and contribute towards.

Your child’s key person will make time to find out from you about your child’s interests, likes, dislikes and special requirements. Please share any important or useful information when you register your child and throughout their time with us. This helps us to give your child the most appropriate care and learning to suit their developmental, emotional and physical needs. You can access and contribute your views to your child's progress and achievements in their records.

What qualifications do your staff have?

All our staff are fully qualified, or working towards a childcare qualification, as defined by the Ofsted Daycare Standards (please ask to see certificates).

How quickly can my child start?

We are keen that every child feels settled, happy and secure in our childcare. We want to make the big step from home into childcare a positive experience for everyone.

Once your child is offered a place, you and your child start a ‘settling in’ process that is based on your child’s needs.

We help your child settle comfortably by:

  • Recognising that some children take longer to settle than others. 
  • Encouraging your child to develop a special relationship with their key person so they feel secure in our care.
  • Introducing your child to our daily routine and the environment at different times of the day so they feel reassured and familiar with different sessions.
  • Making you feel welcome to stay with your child at the beginning over a period of time and different times of the day. Over time you can gradually spend longer periods apart until your child is ready to start their daily session without you.
  • Talking with you regularly about the best way to settle your child and listening to your queries or concerns. We want you to feel confident and relaxed when you leave your child in our care.
  • Your child only officially starts with us when they complete their first short session happily without you.
