We like to think of ourselves as an exceptionally strong team at Little Harriers. Ofsted requires that all nursery manager’s have their level 3 qualification in early years childcare. At Little Harriers, we are proud to say that as well as this, many of our room managers have also achieved level 3’s & 4’s and are encouraged to work towards their level 5 and we currently have staff working towards or have a full degree. The majority of staff also hold First Aid Certificates for Babies and Children.  

Each age group has a named room manager who runs the room – they are supported by between 1 and 3 other nursery nurses who are based in the same room to ensure continuity of care.

All staff attend Safeguarding training and short courses run by the County Council on a regular basis. We have an on-site Qualified Childcare Assessor who supports the staff who are training. The staff also receive regular training from the director who designs sessions that she feels are suitable for the staff.
