Staff Ratios

All staff at Nurture Me are encouraged to work towards a level 3 Qualification and beyond

Currently all our practitioners have either already achieved a childcare qualification or are working towards them on their apprenticeships, in partnership with South Leicestershire College.

The nursery employs 2 Early Years Teachers, one of whom manages the nursery, and many of our staff have continued to progress beyond their level 3 qualification. We are passionate about training and continual professional development and ensure our practitioners are supported and encouraged to develop their professional skills.

Nurture Me has a sound recruiting policy and all staff are selected on their knowledge of child development, personal qualities and experience.

“The nursery has a robust recruitment process that treats family members equally. Excellent inductions, appraisals and supervisions ensure staff continue to be suitable. Staff have an excellent knowledge of safeguarding procedures and as a result, keep children safe.” From our Ofsted report, April 2014.

The staffing ratios are determined by The Statutory Framework and are as follows:

Babies and children under 2 years 1 staff member per 3 children
Children aged 2 years 1 staff member per 4 children
Children aged 3 and over 1 staff member per 8 children

We are proud to have individually designed rooms relevant to each age group, that are light and spacious. The children are grouped to ensure they receive care that is age appropriate to the developmental needs of your child.
