At The Kiddies Day Nursery, we choose our people for their ability to provide the optimum care and dedication to your child to the exact standard you would expect as a parent.
We employ only qualified nursery staff – 100% in childcare, of which 50% of those staff are further qualified in Playwork, and the other 50% chose to further train in the Level 3 EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) Certificate which became a legislative requirement in 2009.
High quality staff offers your child a higher standard of development and expectation!
All staff are DBS checked upon joining the Company.
(DBS = Disclosure Barring Service) / EYFS = (Early Years Foundation Stage)
All our staff receive a comprehensive induction programme as they start their career with us. Their induction covers training in specialised subjects such as Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene Awareness, Health & Safety Awareness, Safeguarding/Child Protection and SEN Planning as well as extensive room practices to familiarise themselves with our standards and procedures.
The Kiddies Day Nursery offers a wide range of training courses within the industry for both staff and parents to take advantage of, and are registered with the LSC covering NVQ and Advanced Modern apprenticeships, plus many more schemes to ensure that we meet their career development expectations.
