OUR STAFF

Within our supportive and safe environment, each child has a key person who is responsible for their well-being, development and transition from home to school.

All members of our team have fully enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks. All staff hold regularly updated qualifications in Safeguarding, Early Years, Positive Behaviour, Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene and Health & Safety.

We are very proud of our commitment to children's safety and health at Brookside pre-school. All of our staff hold valid Paediatric First Aid qualifications and we hold the accreditation with the FIRST AID INDUSTRY BODY, for their "In Safe Hands" award.
