We aim to have a good variety of ages, skills and qualifications within our team to ensure that we can provide a well rounded care setting for parents, carers and children. Several of our team members are mothers themselves and understand how it feels leaving their child at a nursery setting and having mothers within our team also provides additional knowledge and skills of caring and providing for children. We also have some team members who are grandparents too.
All employees of Little Tigers Day Nursery have a full DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check carried out by the setting before each employee commences employment with us.
Our team at Little Tigers Day Nursery Peterborough continuously strives to build on our team, skills and Knowledge.
We do this through
- Training days
- Regular staff meetings
- Annual appraisals
- One to one meetings with one of the Management team
- Individual room meetings and Room Manager meetings
- A large library of resource books
- Personal Development Plans
- Team building days
We ensure that 90% of our team hold a full and relevant first aid with the aim to have 100% qualified and 75% of practitioners have a food hygiene qualification and 100% have received training in this area.
All team members receive full safeguarding training to ensure we are always working to protect and provide for the children.
Team meetings happen monthly (10 times a year minimum) to enable the whole team to come together and take part in discussions about practise and hold training sessions. Team meetings are used to cascade information about the recent training courses practitioners have attended, future plans for each of the rooms, ideas and good practise skills and many other team strengthening options.
