Mini Explorers has a team of experienced, dedicated and qualified Nursery Practitioners and trained assistants. All of our workforce including volunteers, outside agencies, and our maintenance contractor have had enhanced DBS checks.
We support and encourage personal development and recognise that it is only through a trained and motivated workforce that we can deliver the necessary commitment and care to your children.
Our staff are fully encouraged to attend training courses, workshops, networking sessions and to continue their professional development through all avenues.
All of our staff are trained in Paediatric First Aid.
We concentrate on ensuring that there is a balance of age and experience amongst staff and have a low turnover of staff. All our staff, irrespective of age make Mini Explorers the setting it is today, we are very proud of our team and frequently receive positive comments from parents complimenting us on our friendly staff.
We operate a key worker policy so that both you and your child have close contact with one member of staff who will share information with you.
Your child will be issued with a Tracker Book on entry into the setting. This is to be completed by our practitioners, parents, schools, members of your family and any other carer that has a part to play in the development of your child. The Tracker books enable us to embark on a learning journey, detailing through observations, chats, and working with parents how they like to learn, experiences they will have had to enrich and extend their learning. It will give you a very good insight into how they develop with us.
