Our Staff

At Tavistock Nursery one of our greatest resources is our staff. We have a rigourous recruitment process which ensures we employ staff who have a love of children and enjoy being in their company.

Legislation requires that at least 50% of a childcare staff team must have a relevant childcare qualification. At Tavistock Nursery we believe that looking after young children requires dedicated, knowledgable and committed staff and therefore 100% of our staff have a childcare qualification. These qualifications include staff with NVQ level 2, 3 and 4 as well as staff trained to degree level and 'early years professional status'. We realise that a staff team with high level qualifications have a positive impact on the quality of care and education offered to children attending our nursery.

We are committed to developing our staff team and ensure all staff can access regular training to update their skills and knowledge. This includes in-house training as well as training by external agencies.

All staff are cleared by the Criminal Records Bureau to work with children.
