Our staff are our greatest asset. We have a strong team of mature, experienced, well qualified professionals who receive on-going and up-to-date training. They all dedicate time to getting to know the children well so that they really understand each individual's needs and potential.


Each child is allocated a key-worker who has a special responsibility for him or her.


All our staff are DBS checked and undergo regular training in First Aid, Child Protection, Food Hygiene and Health and Safety. Staff also attend regular courses and conferences to update and learn new skills and bring new information to the setting to enhance the children's learning, so we are able to provide the best environment for the children in our care.


Our team is very approachable and friendly providing a very happy, caring and stimulating environment for the children.
