Our staff are passionate and dedicated to the ethos and community spirit of Scallywags. When joining your child will be assigned a Key worker. They will be responsible for planing tasks and activities that engage and stimulate our child. The team works hard to ensure that the curriculum and environment is engaging so that all children achieve their goals and thrive.
Training for key staff ongoing this ensures that we remain active in our own learning. We bring projects into the setting such as Healthy early year’s programs (we have accredited Healthy early years status twice since 2010), also the government Every child a talker program (ECaT) which promotes positive communication. Working on programs such as those mentioned helps us to facilitate good practice and to continue to grow with parents also developing skill along with us.
We provide new parents with the relevant induction training from experienced members of staff. Parents will continue to shadow us and each other in both activity and food shifts until confident. Several parents have gone on to train with us to achieve qualifications in the early year’s field and we have made strong relationships with the local LEA, taking on a wide range of students.
