We have eight permanent members of staff. Each staff member has a group of 'key children' who they help settle into the preschool and ensures their learning and development takes place during their time with us. We ensure that we work at a high ratio of adults to children at all times to maximise safety and learning opportunities. All staff have completed safeguarding and paediatric first aid training within our setting.
