Committed to providing the best care

Our opening times mean that we don’t have to operate a shift system, so our children enjoy the benefit of seeing the same familiar faces every day. We also make a point of employing a permanent relief nursery staff to cover during holidays and periods of sickness. All staff are DBS (formerly CRB) checked in addition to being vetted by the Babraham Institute.

Staff qualifications

Most of our nursery staff are fully qualified, and many hold higher diplomas in childcare.

Our minimum qualification standard for nursery staff is the Cache Level 3 in Childcare or BTEC Nursery Nurse Diploma. We welcome volunteers on college work placements, although they’re never left in charge or on their own, and are not counted in staff-to-child ratios.
