The Team


Key persons

Our setting uses a key person approach. This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom she is particularly responsible. Your child’s key person will be the person who works with you to make sure that what we provide is right for your child’s particular needs and interests. When your child first starts at the setting, she will help your child to settle and throughout your child’s time at the setting, she will help your child to benefit from the setting’s activities.
