Staff at West Bridgford
Our fully qualified staff are dedicated to providing a happy and safe environment for all the children. All our staff are carefully chosen not only for their experience and qualifications but also for their ability to work as a team and to show commitment and empathy to children in their care.
Many have been with us for several years and so not only offer continuity for your child, but are also more mature and have extensive childcare experience as well. In each room the required amount of qualified nursery nurses are supplemented by trainee nursery nurses. All staff to child ratios are always met and often exceeded.
Staff, where possible remain constant, operating a ‘Key Worker’ system. This is when each child is allocated to a member of staff to provide a link between the parents and child. They will be largely responsible for settling them into nursery, their day to day care and communicating with the parents about their child’s development. This enables the member of staff to develop close relationships with children in their care.
I have a passion for ensuring all children are given the opportunities to thrive and develop and believe that the stepping stones they take in early life lay the foundations for their development and skills in later life. I started working in childcare in 2003, and after completing my NVQ in childcare, I then went on to complete my NVQ in management and went onto university to do my foundation degree in early years. My husband I have recently relocated back to Nottingham (which is where I grew up), and I am delighted this has led to me managing a great nursery team with such a fantastic building and outdoor space.
