We carefully select our staff and guarantee your child will be cared for by our highly experienced, qualified and friendly team. All staff are handpicked because of their loving, caring and warm personalities. These factors ensure your child’s day in the nursery is happy and packed full of fun within a secure and safe environment. The learning experience is offered through the mediums of Welsh & English with many of our staff being welsh speakers.
All staff are police checked with an enhanced DBS Certificate (Disclosure Barring Service).As a basic requirement every member of the team are qualified in the provision of Paediatric First Aid, Child Protection and Basic Food Hygiene.
Additionally, they regularly attend other courses throughout the academic year to enhance their professional development and therefore continually improve the care provided to the children.
You are welcome to visit the nursery and be introduced to the team. For your convenience you will find photograph boards identifying staff are placed at the entrance to the individual departments. All staff have their names on their uniforms to allow you to identify them. The following will give you a first introduction to us all.
My name is Debra and I have owned and managed Pitter Patter since we opened on the 1st September 2003. I qualified as a nursery nurse in 1986, Registered General Nurse in 1992 and achieved my NVQ4 in Nursery Management in November 2010 . As a working mum and having three daughters and a grandson of my own I understand that your peace of mind is paramount to the well being of your child. I am dedicated to ensuring that both I and my staff maintain our commitment to customer service excellence to both our BIG AND LITTLE CUSTOMERS!
Diane - Deputy Manager
I BELIEVE CHILDREN SHOULD BE HEARD AS WELL AS SEEN
My name is Diane and I have been in Pitter Patter since 2003. I have been a qualified nursery nurse since 1988, achieving my NVQ4 in Nursery Management in December 2009, and have 2 grown-up sons. As well as being Deputy Manager I also manage the catering section and ensure that all the children enjoy a healthy and well balanced menu..
I feel that children are individuals and should be free to express themselves openly. Parents and visitors often comment on the happy sounds of the children’s laughter and voices.
