What to Expect, When?

We are there for you and your child

We have all worked together for many years at All Saints and are a happy, stable team. This provides continuity for your child throughout their time with us and a lovely co-operative atmosphere for your child to play in.

  • Ratio of adults to children is always met or above specific legal requirements.
  • At each session there are always designated staff qualified in paediatric first aid, food hygiene and safeguarding children responsibilities, to comply with legal requirements.
  • All staff have a Certificate of Disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau.
  • All staff have undertaken training in childcare and have relevant qualifications.
  • We regularly update and extend our knowledge through recognised courses. We feel it is important to keep up to date with our training to provide the best possible experiences for your child. Staff have accessed recent courses in the following areas to update their training: Effective Teaching & Learning Outdoors, Up & Down, Round & Round Patterns in Play, Planning Interventions for SEN Support, Safe Recruitment, Unlocking the Wonders of the World, Amazing Maths in Everyday Play & JDRF Type 1 Diabetes training.
