Outstanding Team Players
The Childcare Team Members at Stars Day Nursery are carefully selected with a rigorous recruitment and induction procedure to ensure our Team are suitable to work with children. Our Team have clear roles and responsibilities and are well supported by the management team to develop their knowledge and experience through the effective appraisal system, supervision, regular team meetings and training.
Our Childcare Team Members are selected on the basis of their qualifications and experience and also their ability to relate to children and their families. In addition, we check references on all of our Childcare Team and ensure they have a Clean Enhanced Criminal Check (DBS) which is up to date.
OFSTED recommend the following ratios of team members to age groups:
Up to 2 years – 1 Nursery Nurse to 3 children
2 to 3 years – 1 Nursery Nurse to 4 children
3 to 5 years – 1 Nursery Nurse to 8 children
However, we employ a higher ratio overall and a higher level of qualified team than that required for 30 children as we want to provide the best quality childcare possible and believe this can be achieved with such ratios.
We are an equal opportunities employer who believe that looking after our team members is paramount. After all they are working hard to ensure that each child receives an excellence in care.
“A high calibre of carers who show a genuine interest in the children and what they do. I feel confident and happy to leave my son at the nursery based on how happy my daughter has been there”
“Excellent – my child took a while to settle into a nursery environment but your team made a real effort to help him feel comfortable and secure. The team also seem to know each child and treat them individually”
