We have a number of outstanding practitioners at Carisbrook Day Nursery. The Nursery Manager has a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies and has also gained an Early Years Professional Status. We have qualified teachers with a Masters qualification. Many of our practitioners hold level 3 qualifications in childcare. We also contribute to the development of young practitioners by taking on apprentices who are all working towards their level 3 & 2 childcare qualification. We believe in developing our practitioner’s knowledge through high quality external and internal training to help them achieve, and deliver outstanding learning for our children and families who attend Carisbrook. In line with the new government legislation all staff at Carisbrook Day Nursery are First Aid trained.
At Carisbrook we believe in building solid early years foundation for children and partnerships with our parents. This is achieved from their first visit and continues throughout their time with us. We offer an open door policy so parents are able to share their comments and come for advice, help and support when needed, we are always on hand to help or we can sign post them to other organisations who may be able to offer support.
We endeavour to deliver high quality care and learning opportunities and believe that children are at the heart of everything we do.
