All our staff are here to ensure that your child is getting the best possible care and that your needs as parents are being addressed. With this in mind we aim to build a positive parent/partner relationship. Nikki Walford –Owner/Manager takes a full and active role in the nursery and is fully qualified in Childcare and Customer Care Management. We have seven level 3 qualified nursery nurse staff and one level 2. We regularly offer short and long-term placements for students on work experience or studying for a qualification at Level 2 and beyond to foundation degrees.
We take pride in the people we employ both for their experience and dedication to young children. We recognise the important role they play for us and we try to ensure they stay with us long term. On-going professional development is met by in-house training or by gaining additional NVQ’s arranged by ETS (Educational, Training and Skills). In 2012 Nikki won ‘Employer of the Year’ in recognition for supporting lifelong learning within the workplace. One of our nursery nurses Toni also won a ‘Highly Commended ‘ award for personal achievement. Additionally, we up-skill our practitioners using external trainers for areas such as first-aid, safeguarding and special needs children.
