The safety of our nursery children is our highest priority and we comply with all relevant legislation to ensure that all staff have the appropriate clearance to work with children.

In addition we strive to ensure that all our staff are NVQ Level 3 qualified or working towards this level qualification. Regular training is available to all staff through a variety of providers and this is complemented by in-house training and staff supervision and appraisals on a regular basis.

We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to supporting our local communities by working with local schools and colleges to provide work experience placements and apprenticeships for young people within our communities. We are keen to promote the value of working with children as a rewarding career choice and are happy to contribute in this way.
