The Pre-School staff prides themselves on being friendly and welcoming to all parents, carers and their children. All our staff hold relevant qualifications for their position, hold updated first aid certificates, have DBS criminal record clearance and are registered with the DBS update service.
Our pre-school aims to:
provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age;
work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop;
add to the life and well-being of the local community; and
offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.
Key person and your child
Our pre-school uses a key person approach. This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom she is particularly responsible. Your child's key person will be the person who works with you to make sure that the childcare that we provide is right for your child's particular needs and interests. When your child first starts at our pre-school, she will help your child to settle and throughout your child's time at our pre-school, she will help your child to benefit from our activities.

The management of our pre-school
Our pre-school is a charity and as such is managed by a volunteer management committee - whose members are elected by the parents of the children who attend our pre-school. The elections take place at our Annual General Meeting. The committee make up the registered person with Ofsted and are responsible for:
managing our finances;
employing and managing our staff;
making sure that we have, and work to, policies that help us to provide a high quality service; and
making sure that we work in partnership with parents.
The Annual General Meeting is open to the parents of all of the children who attend our pre-school. It is our shared forum for looking back over the previous year's activities and shaping the coming year's plan.
