We pride ourselves on our experienced staff who will be on hand to help at any time. All Staff have required DBS/CRB check certificates. Our training is ongoing and this is why the Nursery takes advantage of staff development days to be able to attend courses run by Kent County Council (K.C.C.) the Preschool Learning Alliance (P.L.A.) and other relevant agencies.


The Committee is made up from parents and friends of the Nursery. They are collectively responsible for the Nursery. They are always grateful for offers of help for fundraising etc. They hold at least 3 meetings per year to discuss Nursery matters and accounts. The planning and day-to-day matters are the responsibility of the Nursery Manager.

The Committee is: –

We are currently looking for 3 new committee members, no experience is needed and full training is given. Becoming a committee member is a great way to build skills and meet new people whilst helping to ensure that the nursery stays in a strong position.
