We have a high ratio of adults to children in the setting which helps us to give time and attention to each child and helps the children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide. Qualified and experienced staff are available at all times, including a First Aider. All staff have been checked by the Criminal Records Bureau./Disclosure & Barring System
Staff regularly attend training courses to continue their professional development. We also work with outside agencies (eg Speech Therapists, Special Educational Needs experts, Health Visitors, Early Years advisory Teachers).
