Qualifications and Training
It is our policy that all staff are trained to receive a minimum NVQ Level 2 in childcare or equivalent, though the team hold a wide range of qualifications from NVQ's to degrees. All our Key Person's are qualified at Level 3. Staff working towards further qualifications are highly encouraged by the management, not only to support them in every way possible, but to allow them to ultimately apply their knowledge and skills to their work at the setting.
All our staff hold various First Aid, Health and Safety, Safeguarding and Food Hygiene and Leadership certificates. Relevant certificates are frequently reviewed to ensure training courses are refreshed as necessary. For added reassurance, we have a defibrillator on the premises for staff to use should they need to in an emergency.
The monitoring of safety for both children and staff at the nursery is of paramount importance. As such, we have procedures in place where staff and children's wellbeing is regularly reviewed and risk assessed. To ensure this, our staff take part in internal and external training programmes, keeping everybody up to date with the latest regulations and educational developments while allowing us to appraise our methods, exchange opinions and develop a wealth of ideas.
