At every session a minimum of 75% of staff hold qualifications in childcare and there is always a qualified First Aider present.
Staffing ratios are:
3mths to 2 yrs – 1 adult to every 3 children
2yrs to 3yrs – 1 adult to every 4 children
3yrs to 5 yrs – 1 adult to every 6 children
We do reserve the right to alter this to 1 adult to 8 children (the government requirement) if necessary to cover staff illness.
All staff at Greatham Village Nursery School are CRB checked.
Your child will be allocated to a specific member of staff who will act as a first point of contact for you and your child at nursery school. Key workers can be of great help during the settling in period and in providing continuity for the children while they are at Nursery School. Key Workers also keep records of our child’s achievements, which you are welcome to see at any time.
