Let them learn the fun way through play!



At  present we have 7 staff at the preschool, all of whom are fully qualified to a minimum Level 3, as well as having bank staff to cover staff absences. All our staff are vetted to a high standard and all hold current DBS checks that are on the update service. 

 Staff are currently first aid trained with epi-pen training but we will always have at least 1 first aider is on the premises at all times. 

Staff are also appointed in the following roles with additional training undertaken... Senco/Enco, Safeguarding Designated person, Health & safety Officer and fire safety officer. All staff are also trained in Prevent duty, FGM and safeguarding level 2 (minimum).

We are a close team of qualified adults, who are responsible for improving their own personal professional development.
