We have highly qualified staff, with over 70% holding Level 4 and above accredited qualifications in Childcare. We have also been supportive of enabling the younger generation by partnering with accredited institutions to provide training and job opportunities through sponsored apprenticeship schemes.

The wealth of skills and experience presents a strong base for the delivery of quality service.

We also have a cook, who prepares fresh nutritional meals for all the children and has the relevant qualifications and training. They also keep abreast of any updates or recommendations from the Food Standards Agency.
