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.

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 Maria Cross, or the Committee Chair on 01275 472742.
