At The Norwich Road Nursery we are very proud of our team of staff. All new staff are interviewed by the owners and references are obtained as well as enhanced CRB checks. Further annual checks are carried out on all staff.
As part of our duty of care, we consider it our responsibility to develop an ethos of self evaluation and analysis of performance at every level within the provision.
New staff (at any level) must complete a 3 month trial period during which time they are fully supervised by senior staff at all times. This gives them time to learn Nursery procedures and policies thoroughly and gives us the opportunity to monitor and assess them in more detail.
Over 90% of our staff hold appropriate Early Years qualifications which include level 2, 3, 4 and Early Years Degree with Early Years Professional Status (EYPS).
Some of our staff have been with us since we opened in 2004. We believe our staff retention is very good, an important factor in childcare and education.
