We are there for your child and you

Our work has one clear focus: your child's individual needs. In order for us to support your child's development in the best possible way, we employ people with different educational training backgrounds. They all attend regular further training courses, which enable them to bring new ideas and proposals to their daily work - ideas that will also benefit your child!  Ever wondered what we do on inset days - it's training!  This is when we keep up to date with all relevant practices of childcare and update our statutory training such as Safeguarding, First Aid, GDPR and much more.
