Wishing Well staffing policy is to run at higher rate of staff - child ratio than Ofsted requires, We  operate above requirements to

ensure cover for staff daily breaks, holidays or absence. We ensure your child forms relationships with a small group of staff who provide excellent continuity. We run a key person system and all children are allocated a key person when they start and when they move to a new room. We also employ student childcare practitioners at various levels.


Our experience cook is fully trained in hygiene, food handling and nutritional needs of young children.


We ensure staff hold a qualification in paediatric first aid and basic food hygiene.


We highly value our staff; it is in the interest of the nursery, the children and the individual that each staff member is given the opportunity to develop their personal skills to their maximum and to broaden their knowledge and skills in caring for children.


We ensure that all our staff go through the required DBS vetting and have a stringent induction for all new staff.
