Newlands Nursery Staff

We aim to ensure that either the Managers or Senior Nursery Assistant is present during each session, supported by other members of staff depending on the adult to child ratios (staff: child ratio 1:3 for under 2 years old, 1:4 for under 3 years old,  1:8 for over 3 years old). 

Staff present at each session are recorded in the register. Unexpected staff absence due to illness or emergency is covered, where possible, by existing staff members first, then if required, staff on the nursery supply list.

90% of our staff hold first aid certificates. All of our staff have been CRB Checked and hold an Enhanced Disclosure. All members of staff have received Safeguard Training and Food Hygiene training.
