Our Senior Nursery Nurses and Room leaders are qualified Nursery Nurses with a certificate in First Aid and either a National Nursery Examination Board Certificate (NNEB), B-Tec National Diploma, NVQ level 3 in Childcare, Level 3 Diploma in Early Years Educator (EYE) or DCE Level 3 in Childcare and education. They will usually have received two years professional training with practical experience in a day nursery, a primary school, the home, hospital and/or special care centres.
We hold regular one to one reviews with our employees to discuss their career development and training needs. It is important to our nursery group that we are developing individuals to be able to offer opportunities of promotion throughout their career with us.
Higher education diplomas and qualifications are offered to practitioners who wish to develop in specialised areas such as SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and leadership and management skills. Our employees are encouraged to participate in courses to further their professional development.
Our Nursery Assistants are enthusiastic and dedicated, they are sensitive to the needs of the individual children and are developing their knowledge and skills in Early years. Assistants have a range of experience, some possessing other qualifications, most are in training for the Level 2 certificate or the Level 3 Diploma (EYE).
We offer core training to all of our employees which includes Emergency Paediatric First Aid Training and Child Protection Training.
