Waterfront Nurseries’ staff are all highly trained and qualified in caring for children. The nursery’s most recent HMiE report (2006) commended staff for their effectiveness in developing and supporting children’s learning.
In order to maintain this level of quality, childcare standards and performance are continually monitored and all staff have the opportunity to participate in continual professional development and training throughout the year. Regular team meetings and in-house training further promote a feeling of team spirit and encourage staff to feel proud of the important role they play in your child’s development.
