Nursery South Croydon - Childcare Staff

Reassurance to Parents and Relatives

At Abbey Wood Grange we employ experienced highly qualified members of staff, many of whom are long serving members who have all been DBS checked and the necessary documentation is on file.  All passports and driving licences are checked and detailed references from previous employers or colleges are obtained.

Enhanced CRB checks on Vince & Sue, the proprietors, were carried out prior to them taking over the nursery and Ofsted carry out the necessary checks regularly.

Our staff attend regular first aid training, and safeguarding children courses and refreshers and therefore are aware to report anything they feel suspicious of, as well as attending college to obtain the various levels of NVQ in childcare.

We installed CCTV in every room and outside in the garden areas and the perimeter of the nursery for the safety and security of children, staff and visitors.

Many of our staff have been employed in the nursery over a number of years and are known to parents of children who used to attend the nursery.  Lots of the children who join our nursery hear about us by recommendation from their friends who have attended or currently attend.

All staff photo's, together with their positions and any extra languages spoken are posted on the notice board in the reception area.

We believe by employing full and part time personnel good working relationships are developed and exceptional teamwork established. A motivated working team results in happy children.
