Staff Training

At More2Nurseries our staff are motivated and supported to continuously raise their skills and qualification level. Up to 40% of our staff can be studying for NVQ and degree level courses at any one time.

All staff work on continual CPD training throughout the year and we dedicate a week every summer to staff training where we invite external experts into the nurseries to train staff.

The safety of children at More2Nurseries is paramount and therefore all our permanent staff renew their paediatric first aid qualification every three years with an annual refresher.Additionally, all staff review their food hygiene certificates, safeguarding, health and safety qualifications as soon as they have lapsed.We aim for all permanent (and also long-term bank staff) to have their paediatric first aid qualification.
