Our nursery staff are trained and qualified to the highest standards. This high level of training reflects the commitment of Stanhope House Day Nursery to staff development.  Our excellent record in retaining staff indicates that our staff consider Stanhope House Day Nursery to be a good place to work and to advance their careers. It also provides continuity and coherence of care of our children.

We pride ourselves on the high quality of care that we deliver.  We have a flexible approach and provide a family atmosphere. Continuity and coherence of care are ensured by our excellent record in retaining staff.

Furthermore, the staff move around the Nursery rooms at the beginning of, and the end of, the day. This creates a friendly atmosphere as children and parents become acquainted with all the Nursery Nurses.

Your child will receive support from an experienced member of staff responsible for your child’s individual needs known as the key person. Although the key person will be your main point of contact, all nursery staff will be happy to feedback on your child’s development progress on a daily basis or discuss any concerns with you.  We have key nursery staff trained in safeguarding children – managing child behaviour – health and safety – paediatric first aid – adult first aid – special needs co ordinator.

Staff are either currently being trained or are already trained to level 3 status in childcare and in EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). As the children get older, our Early Years Professional help to prepare them for school, liaising with the local schools and teachers and supporting their transition.
