We follow the staffing well within the recommended children to staff ratio and our experienced staff are qualified, or they are working towards the final stage of NVQ in childcare.
Baby room: 1 adult to 3 children
Toddler room: 1 adult to 4 children
Preschool room: 1 adult to 8 children
All staff and cover staff are CRB checked and if any new staff is not CRB checked then they are not left alone in the room there is a member of staff accompanying them at all times when round the children.
We believe that training should be an ongoing thing and we value continuing professional development. We have periodic training sessions, which imbibe a spirit of ongoing training in the staff.
We work very closely with Barking and Dagenham Council and the early years team, they often come in and see us and the children, they give us training sessions and include the children in these, so everyone benefits from them.
