Children's Place Day Nurseries recognises the importance of employing and developing highly qualified early years practitioners. This ensures that all of our settings are meeting the high standards of care and education that all children and families deserve, and that each nursery team is fulfilling the requirements to be a high quality early years environment.
All staff employed by Children's Place are committed to professional development to the highest levels with the minimum expectation of achieving NVQ Level 3. Senior members of staff are encouraged to progress to Level 4 and beyond. This high expectation ensures the best quality care and education for every child within our settings.
Our experienced and long standing Nursery Managers are responsible for encouraging and maintaining this high quality, and all our Nursery Managers hold a Foundation Degree in Childcare, with many topping up to the Graduate Degree (BA) in Early Years and Early Years Professional Status (EYPS).
Children’s Place Day Nurseries are proud of our low staff turnover, as many of our staff remain with the company for ten or more years. This speaks for itself, showing the dedication and quality of the staff we invest in.
The company holds two full team-training days per year and encourages all staff to undertake a programme of continuous professional development.
Our staff are true assets to Childrens Place, ensuring the welfare and care of the children remains at the heart of each nursery.
