Our Staff

Our Staff

Managing the nursery are mum and daughters Pat, Rebecca & Anna Kent. All staff members are known on a first name basis creating a warm, caring and friendly atmosphere. In order to maintain high level of quality, childcare standards and performance are continually monitored and all staff have the opportunity to participate in continual professional development and training throughout the year. Regular team meetings and in-house training further promote a feeling of team spirit and encourage staff to feel proud of the important role they play in your child’s development. We place a high emphasis on staff training and development as we believe that our most valuable resource is our staff. All staff have fully enhanced DBS checks.

Key Worker System

When your child starts at One Small Step, they will be allocated a Key worker. This enables a close, secure adult–child relationship, which is critical for early development.

Your key worker will discuss with you the best way of settling your child in to the nursery, working with your child’s existing individual routine.

Your Key worker will speak to you at the beginning and end of each day to discuss how your child’s day has been and what activities they have been involved in. The key worker will share and celebrate the progress of your child.
