Our Staff

Our committed team of qualified staff aspire to develop their skills and knowledge; they will inspire and motivate every child to be the best they can be, laying the foundations for lifelong learning.  We will adapt our practice, provision and environment to sensitively support every child and their wider family.
Each and every child is made to feel special and individual, cherished and thought about while they are away from their home. Our staff understand that every child learns and develops in different ways and at different rates, they consider the individual needs, interests and stage of development of each child in our care, and use this information to plan challenging, enjoyable and exciting experiences for each and every child in all areas of learning, development and care.
