All practitioners have the experience and/or qualification suitable for their role and duties. All practitioners at the Nursery hold a full and relevant childcare qualification and hold a valid first aid certificate.
Practitioners are trained in the following areas:
- Safeguarding children (child protection)
- Basic Food Hygiene
- Forest School
Managers ensure that practitioners are kept up to date with childcare practices by producing annual training and development plans.
The Nursery has a Special Needs Co-ordinator, a Child Protection Co-ordinator and an Equality and Diversity Co-ordinator. To ensure that these roles and Nursery policies and procedures are fulfilled to their full potential, co-ordinators attend regular training events and cluster meetings provided by the Local Authority.
