The Hollies Pre-School staff consists of:
The manager has NVQ level 4 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development.
We have one supervisor with Foundation Degree level 5 and one with NVQ level 3 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development.
We aim to have as many qualified staff as possible, offering them support and encouragement to expand their knowledge through training.
We have bank staff who cover sickness and holidays. Although not qualified these staff have years of experience and receive training relating to the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We are committed to safeguarding all our children at the Hollies, therefore rigorous checks including Enhanced DBS checks are carried out before the employment of a new member of staff can commence.
Every member of staff completes paediatric First Aid training through Millies Trust.
All staff must agree and abide by the policies of the Pre-School regarding discipline etc and will subject to the disciplinary process if they are found not to do so.
All staff are carefully selected and a very high standard of commitment is demanded from them to ensure the best possible care for your children.
