Here at Adorable Nurseries our staff have been carefully selected for their qualifications, experience and for their passion of working with children and to be an active member of a successful team. All staff have current DBS checks which are reviewed yearly.

The nursery employs two room leaders who oversee the daily running of the three rooms. Each room leader is qualified either to Level 3 or above. The room leaders are responsible for the nursery nurses and ensure the smooth running of the daily routine, and plan activities to be carried out during the day. The room leaders are responsible for a key group of children and they oversee their individual learning and development.
The Nursery nurses whom we employ are all qualified at level two early years qualification or are working towards a level three. Each have their own key children whom they are responsible for and to ensure they meet the individual needs of those children.
