Our Nursery is led by one of our directors, Anthony Bailey, a former barrister in the City of London. He is supported by a very experienced deputy and four experienced room managers. We employ very qualified and experienced people who exceed the requirements of the regulations set out by the Children’s Act 1989. There are multiple members of staff with recognised child-care qualifications permanently based in each of the rooms at the Nursery. Most of our staff have level three childcare qualifications; others have level two childcare qualifications. Three of our staff were deputy managers in their previous nurseries. Two of our staff members has qualified teacher status and a number of our staff are graduates.
We ensure that all members of the team undertake ongoing training and that they keep their childcare qualifications up to date. They frequently attend internal and external training courses (including on safeguarding, SEND in Early Years settings, next steps and planning, supporting children with special educational needs and behaviour coordination).
All of our team members are paedriatric first aid qualified and they have all been subject to Enhanced DBS checks.
We are committed to ensuring that our team enjoys working at the Nursery and that they realise how valued they are; they are our most important resource. Our team members have demonstrated time and again a drive and commitment to providing excellent quality care for your children. Every child is allocated one of our team members as their key person (they are also allocated a substitute key person (or buddy), just in case their main key person is unavailable at any point.
