We have an experienced, well-qualified and dedicated staff team at St Mary’s and our staffing levels allow us to maintain a low child to staff ratio.
Our team is made up of a team of Level 3 Childcare qualified staff, a number of qualified teachers and a SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator). All our team are parents themselves and we believe this allows us to provide a warm and nurturing learning environment where every child flourishes. We have a trained first aider on site at all times.
Our key worker system means that each member of our team has particular responsibility for a small number of children. The key worker will liaise with parents/carers through discussion and shared records to ensure the individual needs and interests of each child are met.
Each child has a folder documenting their learning journey through observations, discussion and physical evidence of achievements. Parents are encouraged to review their child’s folder and comment about their progress on a regular basis.
