A professional day nursery with a family feel.
Caterpillar Day Nursery is owned by two friends, Fiona Bowden and Lisa Raynes, whom are both qualified and very experienced child carers. Fiona and Lisa are both mothers themselves and can empathise with parents when it comes to choosing a nursery
We pride ourselves on our quality staff team, and only employ staff who are fully qualified or whom are very experienced with a willingness to gain a recognised childcare qualification.
All staff hold a First Aid qualification, Safeguarding and Basic Food Hygiene certificates as a minimum.
We have high expectations of our staff to deliver the highest standards at all times and in return we offer every opportunity for staff to develop their personal and professional skills. We facilitate regular staff meetings, supervisons, peer on peer observations, staff appraisals and encourage all members of our team to attend both internal and external training courses. More recently we employed the services of an external early years consultant to facilitate staff training and development as a whole team.
We employ additional staff to support the team to ensure we maintain ratios at all times and that the staff are always supervising the children rather than cooking meals or cleaning the nursery.
