To ensure we provide the best care possible for your child and to keep up to date with the latest information, staff regularly undertake training covering a wide range of subjects. The training includes topics such as; the curriculum, safeguarding, including child protection, behaviour management, inclusion, communication, speech and language, allergy awareness, administering medicines. A full list of training courses undertaken is held at Pre-School.
Our key person system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a few children. Each child in the setting has one special adult assigned to support them through their learning and development, which makes settling into Pre-school very much easier.
