A bit about our staff
All our staff are qualified in childcare and many have advanced qualifications. Staff regularly attend training to keep their skills up-to-date.
To support quality in the service we engage with a range of support programmes for childcare for example:
Incredible Years Dino Programme
The purpose of the Incredible Years Curriculum is to support children’s learning through the use of puppets and positive relationship building. The following skills are deliberately targeted through Incredible Years:
- Positive social skills
- Conflict and anger management skills
- Emotional literacy
- Behaviours that will support the children’s transition to school
- Reading, writing and communication skills
The purpose is to promote children’s positive self-esteem and general social, emotional, and academic competence. Sessions, using puppets, are provided in the preschool rooms each week by staff trained in the programme.
