Staff and parents

The staff team

We have a committed and experienced staff team. We are proud of the high ratio of adults to children in our group (1:6 minimum). This ensures a good understanding of needs and development of each child. All staff undergo DBS checks.

Claire Lavender-House is the staff member responsible for safeguarding children. The Safeguarding policy is held in the Operational Plan and is held under the “Documents” section of the website.

All qualified staff have current Paediatric First Aid Certificates.

The role of parents

The Pre-School recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their young children. Our Pre-School aims to support parents.

Parents are welcomed:

  • to work in the group with the children
  • to take part in the management of the Pre-School via the committee
  • to assist in fundraising
  • to attend training courses, workshops and conferences.
  • to represent the Pre-School at branch and county activities
  • to participate in organised outings

We hope that your child’s time in pre-school will be a happy and productive one. If you have any queries, or if we can be of any help, please contact Claire Lavender-House, or the Committee Chair on 01275 472742.
