We provide high levels of quality childcare by ensuring our staff are suitably trained and qualified. All staff have either completed their Level 5 Childcare Cert or are working towards it. Our Montessori teachers have relevant Montessori qualifications. Our Supervisors have L6 Childcare qualifications.

Our staff are trained and experienced in caring for young children - leading and guiding them and helping them learn about the world around them - and offer consistent support in a secure and loving environment.
