Meet The Team

The team are extremely dedicated and strive to provide the very best for the children, ensuring they are happy, content and progressing in their development. They do this by holding regular staff meetings and holding a planning meeting every week.

They also take part in training to ensure they keep up to date with information, new initiatives and legislation changes.  ​Our staff members keep up to date on training in food safety, first aid and safeguarding.

Over the past year they have attended training in:  Additional Learning Needs Pt3, Food Hygiene Level 2, Observation & Assessment, Autism Awareness, Makaton Levels 1 & 2, The Curiosity Approach, Designated Safeguarding Lead, Paediatric First Aid Basic and Safeguarding Awareness.

​We ensure that all staff members have regular DBS checks.
