Our managers and senior staff hold a range of esteemed qualifications, including higher education degrees like BAHons in Early Years, and advanced Apprenticeships at Levels 3, 4, 5, & 6.

We’re thrilled that our team has expanded their expertise beyond the essential qualifications, embracing specialised areas like SENCO, and early literacy and numeracy. This commitment to excellence ensures we not only meet but exceed the required standards, providing a safe and stimulating environment for all our children. 

Our nursery staff typically possess NVQ Level 3 qualifications, complemented by Pediatric First Aid certifications, demonstrating their commitment to providing safe and nurturing care. Many of our team members also hold qualifications beyond Level 3, reflecting their expertise and dedication to continuous professional development.

Most of those joining us having qualified at Level 2 are actively enhancing their skills through our Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship program, underpinning our commitment to fostering a highly skilled and educated team.
