Children’s nursery in Barnet
Having the right people in place to look after your child is vital. Qualifications are important but we also look for a warm and friendly personality and people who take a genuine interest in your child’s development.
When you leave your child in Arkley’s Little Acorns Nursery, you can rest assured that they are being cared for by well-trained, caring and responsible professionals in a child-centred environment.
Every member of staff is vetted by the Criminal Records Bureau and each hold qualifications for child care. Most are highly qualified in a variety of fields, and our ongoing staff training policy further develops their skills and ability in childcare practice.
Like the children in our care, we want our staff to achieve their full potential. All senior staff hold a NVQ Level 3 or equivalent and all staff are encouraged to join training schemes. Regular in-house training is available throughout the year and include the following: Fire Drill / prevention, First Aid, Food Hygiene, Child Development, Curriculum Training, Planning and Observation, Managing Children’s behaviour & Basic Food Hygiene.
We also realise that, while in our care, the children look to us as role models, which is why every member of the team works hard to make each child feel valued and secure. All staff are trained in SafeGuarding and are aware of our child Protection Policy and adhere to strict confidentiality procedures at all times.
