Allexton Day Nursery Staff
We pride ourselves on having a caring and dedicated staff team. The team is well established with staff that have been employed at the nursery since it first opened.
All staff hold a professional childcare qualifications i.e. CACHE Diploma in Childcare & Education / N.N.E.B. (National Nursery Examining Boards), N.V.Q. level 3 or B.T.E.C. and all have at least two years post qualifying experience. Each member of staff is checked by the Criminal Records Bureau, in line with current procedures.
We take the development of our staff team seriously offering regular training opportunities, which in turn we feel has long term benefits for the children attending the nursery.

Members of staff have additional areas of responsibility, enabling us to have a designated person for:

  • Health and Safety
  • Special Educational Needs
  • Child Protection
  • Foundation Stage Curriculum
  • Birth to Three Matters

Staff work strictly within the required ratios as follows:

Children under 2 years -

Children 2 to 3 years -

Children 3 to 8 years -

One staff member to three children

One staff member to four children

One staff member to eight children

By offering these ratios we ensure that each child’s individual needs are met and they can be offered the best care possible. (Staffing ratios increase to one member of staff to three children when out of the unit on trips or outings.)
