Our Staff

When you place your child in our nursery school, you are placing your trust in us and our staff. Our staff are selected very carefully, on the basis of their qualifications, experience and ability to interact with young children.   All Stepping Stones staff also undergo rigorous police, medical record  and previous employment checks prior to appointment.

 

The nursery is owned and managed by two highly qualified and experienced primary school teachers who lead our team of highly professional, dedicated and caring early years workers.  Research shows that the highest quality nurseries have qualified teachers working alongside well-qualified nursery staff and emphasises that pre-school settings benefit from having a range of professionals playing complementary roles.  In addition it is proven that highly trained staff, particularly teachers, are important in terms of pre-school quality and outcomes for children.
