Staff Team

Our staff team are teacher led and have a wealth of experience and knowledge of preschool children from their many years of training, working in this environment and through their own families. They bring along with them many talents, skills and attributes from their hobbies and past employments. We have an amazing garden and allotment thanks to the knowledge of the staff where they encourage the children to grow their own fruits and vegetables, they also have a love of nature and encourage the children  to take care of creatures and their environment.

The staff continuously update their skills through training, conferences and visits to other settings. 100% of our directors and paid employees are pediatric first aid trained, this is updated every 3 years and we undertake specialist training if a child has a specific medical need. Everyone has a food hygiene certificate for preparing snacks and serving lunch. We regularly attend training, update our knowledge of child protection, safeguarding and current issues and concerns in order to protect all children. All members of staff have specialist training working directly with Early Years and understanding the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Play Partners

Play partners are regular volunteers who come into preschool to play alongside the children or support the preschool, putting their spare time, talents and skills to good use.

*During the current climate of Covid-19 our Play Partners are not volunteering in preschool.

In addition to the above, we also have special support workers who may occasionally work alongside some children who need additional support.

We work with our local schools, colleges and universities allowing students to experience hands-on learning (*not during Covid-19 restrictions).
