Our Staff

Our ratio of staff to children is excellent and ensures a high standard of care:

0-2 year olds – One member of staff to three children
2-3 year olds – One member of staff to four children
3-5 year olds – One member of staff to eight children

After School Staff ratio for 5-11 year olds  – One member of staff to eight children

Even though we have a qualified teacher for Pre School children we maintain a one to eight staffing ratio (legal requirement is 1:13) to give children more focused care and a good start to their education.

We do have staff vacancies from time to time – see our Jobs with Parklands page.

Quality Staff

Our staff are qualified Early Years Nursery Officers with:

  • NNEB, NVQ 2 or 3 or BTec National Diploma qualifications

All staff with an NVQ 2 are working towards level 3.

We have a qualified teacher (Miss Tomlinson) who manages the room for children aged 3-5 years and our manager and deputy are also working towards an Early Years Professional Foundation degree.


All our staff (including administration and maintenance) have:

  • Enhanced clearance from the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB
  • Full checks on their previous employment and qualifications

A number of staff have lead responsibilities and extra training to make sure they can carry out that lead role professionally to support children in our setting, including Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Safeguarding, Fire Marshall and Paediatric First Aid.
