Our Team

We chose our staff team very carefully, all our practitioners are caring and dedicated,  they genuinely enjoy helping children to thrive and learn. Most of our team are qualified to Level 3 or are Early Years specialists and we support their own professional development, making sure their training is up to date.

We’re proud of the low staff turnover we have, it’s helps to keep the nursery running smoothly.
