A team you can trust

At Jolly Tots you can be confident that your children are in good hands.

Our team of dedicated staff is made up of Unit Managers, Senior Nursery Nurses, Nursery Nurse Assistants, Trainees, an In-house Cook and an Administrator – with all staff holding, or working towards, qualifications appropriate to their position.

Plus, like the children in our care, we want our staff to achieve their full potential. All senior staff hold NVQ Level III or equivalent and through our partnership with Rutledge Job Link all staff are encouraged to join external NVQ Level II and III training schemes and regular in-house training is available throughout the year, in the following areas:

  • Fire Drill / prevention
  • First Aid
  • Basic Food Hygiene

We also realise that, while in our care, the children look to us as role models, which is why every member of the team works hard to make each child feel valued and secure. All staff are aware of our Whistle Blowing Policy and Child Protection Policy and adhere to strict confidentiality procedures at all times.

It’s always rewarding to know that you, as a parent, have complete confidence in our high standards of care. However, achieving professional recognition makes it even more worthwhile. At Jolly Tots we always aim high and our awards prove it. What’s more, the hard work and effort put in to gaining these awards is a credit to all our dedicated staff!
