We have a named manager on duty at all times who is always available to spend time with you to discuss your particular needs or queries.

All staff are trained Paediatric First Aiders and the Nursery has achieved the Millie’s Mark award which demonstrates that we go beyond the minimum requirements to keep children safe and minimise risks and accidents at Northumbria Nursery.

All key staff are qualified to a minimum of Level 3 or above and staff attend training or courses of study throughout the year to keep up to date with educational developments to deliver the latest learning experiences to your child.

Our staff are DBS cleared and are rechecked every three years – we also carry out in-house disclosure checks at all staff supervisions which take place every 8 to 10 weeks.
