We have our own support and supply staff who help at the nursery each week. Across all our rooms we have support staff on hand each day to provide a higher ratio of staff than legally required, but by having more staff it enables us to offer a better quality of care for the children.
Our three person management team, made up of the Nursery Manager, Deputy Manager and Third in Charge, all of whom are also not counted in the staff : child ratios means they are on hand as needed to support the staff across the rooms each day.
Our supply staff team also assist with covering extra bookings, trips and outings and the annual leave of our permanent staff team.
Our support staff are unable to work full time with us for various reasons, for example having to care for their own children of school age, caring for relatives or studying part time.
By having our own in-house support staff who are regularly with us each week, both the children and parents get to know them very well, making our support staff an invaluable part of our team here at Aston Pierpoint.
