The Team

Here at Clarecroft we are fortunate to have an extremely highly qualified team of staff to support your children through their formative years.

 

Amongst our Main Nursery staff we currently have:

 

Two Early Years Graduate, a NVQ Level 4, two staff members working towards an Early Years Degree and all staff are Level 3 qualified or working towards this qualification with us.

 

In our Out of School Club we follow the Play work principles following the completion of the level 3 in Play work.

 

All staff are trained in First Aid and Child Safety. We have a qualified experienced Cook who freshly prepares all the children’s meals daily.

 

Having such a highly qualified team of staff demonstrates that we are committed to providing the highest levels of childcare. We are constantly updating our training, policies and procedures to maintain and exceed our existing high standards.

We welcome children from 3 months to 11 years old and aim to provide all of them with high quality care in a warm, safe and friendly environment.
