A charitable incorporated organisation registered with the UK's Charity Commission, no. 1161965
Training for key staff is ongoing, ensuring that we remain active in our own learning. We bring projects into the setting such as Healthy Early Year’s programmes (we have had accredited Healthy Early Years status twice since 2010), also the government Every Child a Talker programme (ECaT), which promotes positive communication. Working on programmes such as these helps us to facilitate good practice and to continue to grow, with parents also developing skills alongside us.
We provide new parents with the relevant induction training from experienced members of staff. They continue to shadow us and each other in both activity and food shifts until confident.
Several parents have gone on to train with us to achieve qualifications in the Early Years field and we have made strong relationships with the Local Education Authority, taking on a wide range of students for their training placements.
