Our Staff

We firmly believe that our staff are our most valuable assets. We choose them for their caring attitude, playful natures and dedication to childcare, as well as their experience and qualifications. Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic team gives our children the best chance to achieve their potential. The vetting procedure for our staff employment is strict and includes Police Checks (DBS) and references.

Little Cherubs operates a continuous in-house training programme as well as additional external courses to improve the quality of care offered to our children. As part of this continuous development we reserve the right to close the nursery for up to two “staff training days” per year.`

 

Staff Ratios:

Little Cherubs work to a high ratio of staff to children to ensure your child has the best level of care. The ratios differ according to the age group of children:

Under 2 years old:

1 adult to 3 children

2 to 3 years old:

1 adult to 4 children

3 years +:

1 adult to 8 children

 

First Aiders:

All our nursery staff are qualified First Aiders. There is a first aid box complying with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 which is kept in an accessible place out of the reach of children. We also have a Health and Safety officer who makes sure all the H&S needs of the nursery are up to date.

 

Hounslow Council Early Years Team:
Little Cherubs Day Nursery works hand in hand with the Early Years Team at Hounslow Council, which gives parents peace of mind that the care offered to their children is of the highest standard.
