Kinderkare are committed to safeguarding children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS is required for this post.
At KinderKare day nurseries, staff training is vitally important to us. Upon gaining employment within our day nurseries and preschools, staff are placed on a 3 year training programme. We see it as our duty to ensure that all staff are highly trained to provide childcare to parents who place their trust in us to educate their children.
To enforce this, staff complete in depth appraisals covering all nursery policies and Ofsted standards. From these, individual training programmes are devised which are monitored and reviewed monthly. An individual training matrix tracks all the courses they have attended or need to attend. Regular in-house training sessions are completed through our monthly staff meetings as we promote a positive learning culture throughout the group. We ensure all staff are fully trained in safeguarding, first aid and the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Our day nursery is closely linked to the local college, with which staff are supported in their training courses, assisting tutors with observations and assessments. KinderKare is fully committed to staff training and development.
