At Goldstone Valley Nursery and Preschool, we strive to provide a stimulating and safe environment that feels like a home from home. Our staff are passionate, dedicated and have the children’s safety, wellbeing and development as their top priority.
Before staff join our setting, we carry out extensive vetting which includes a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.
The staff at Goldstone Valley Nursery and Preschool hold childcare qualifications and attend regular training. The staff have a range of qualifications from Qualified Teacher Status to Montessori, this helps staff to draw on different experiences to provide your child with a broad range of activities to encourage their development.
To enable your child to settle and feel comfortable at nursery, we use a key person system. Your child will be allocated a key person before joining us. During settling in sessions, you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s needs and interests with their key person. We believe the staff are the link between the child and the environment, once the child has bonded with their key person, they will feel confident and comfortable in the setting.
Staff at Goldstone Valley Nursery and Preschool work closely with parents/carers to ensure consistency for the child. We have an ‘open door’ policy and encourage regular contact between staff and parents/carers. We use a secure online system where you can see the activities your child has enjoyed as well as their daily care diary detailing what they have eaten during the day, nappy changes etcetera.
