Who will work with my Child?

Because our primary motive is not profit, ratios of adults to children will always be high and will always meet or better those laid down in regulations.

We only recruit the very best staff at Woodland Grange and ensure they are incredibly well trained.  All staff members are police checked.

During normal school term-time and hours, the setting will be led by Mrs Ruth Smith a highly qualified teacher who is known throughout Leicestershire as an expert in all aspects of Early Years education.  She will lead a team of highly qualified staff members.  All Key Workers will have Level 3 childcare qualifications as a minimum.  Any student pre-school workers e.g. student Nursery Nurses will be in addition to existing staff and never instead of them. Mrs Smith will also be over-seeing provision out of normal school hours and term-time, working closely with the Nursery Managers who will take the lead at these times.

Staff are expert in getting to know children's interests and what motivates them to learn but your child will be allocated a Key Worker who will get to know your child particularly well.
