Our Staff

Your child’s key person supports their development

Staffing levels at Hopes and Dreams meet or exceed those laid down by Ofsted regulations. Everyone we employ is passionate about child development and they deliver an extremely high standard of early childhood education.
We seek individuals to join our team who have a compassionate approach and understand the importance of following each child’s individual needs. We strive to provide continual support and training for our staff through inset days, individual training courses, and regular appraisals.
Each child is assigned a key person who establishes and builds a strong relationship with them. There is a developmental record kept by the key person that parents have access to at all times. We have always maintained an open door policy as we believe the key to success is communication and sharing.

“The most important period of life is the first one, the period from birth to the age of six… At no other age has the child greater need for intelligent help.”
Dr Maria Montessori

We welcome parents as an essential part of the school ethos and learning. By creating a family atmosphere the children are able to share their experiences with both parents and teachers.

Our staff (regardless of their job within the Nursery School) all have to undergo rigorous security and identity checks including an enhanced DBS (the national Disclosure and Barring Service) check. We also require a minimum of two references for every member of staff which are fully vetted, as part of our extensive recruitment procedure.
