All staff hold a valid DBS certificate and attend mandatory training for First Aid, Safeguarding and Food Hygiene which are all updated as and when required.


We have three members of staff who have undertaken training in Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND) and five staff are Makaton trained.  We have experience of working with individual children who have a range of different personal and educational needs. We work in partnership with the local authority to support the needs of individual children when required.


Our setting has gained the ECAT (Every Child's a Talker) accredited standard which encourages good communication within children, parents and staff.
