Our Staff and Committee

Our Staff

All Permanent Pre-School staff are fully trained and have qualifications to NVQ standards, with continuous training and development.

All our staff are selected to work with the children because of their suitability, reliability and wealth of experience but above all, the caring attitude they show toward the children and families who attend the Pre-School and the genuine joy and dedication they have for supporting children to develop and achieve.

All of us are parents ourselves with a wide and varied age range of children between us. As a staff team we have probably come across most child related situations, either through being parents or in our capacity as experienced practitioners. We are more than happy to share strategies or give advice, and if there is something we don’t know, we usually know someone who does!

Staffing Ratios

The staff ratio is 1:4 for children 2-3 years and 1:8 for children aged 3+. We aim to have 4 qualified staff members available during a session.


Key Person

All staff are involved in the care and development of all the children who attend our Pre-School, but a Key Person has the further responsibility for a particular group of children within Pre-School. They monitor the well-being and development of their key children and tailor the planning of the curriculum to meet the individual. The Key Person is also the main link between Pre-School and home and is responsible for observing and recording what their children do and using their observations to plan for the children’s play, learning and development. They are also responsible for sharing this information with their key children’s parents.
