We have a close team of staff who are dedicated to providing your children with the greatest care. We provide on-going support, training and development to our educators to ensure your child is looked after in the greatest way possible. We constantly review our training to ensure it is up to date in the field of child education and care. We receive up-to-date information and have access to a range of professionally produced publications. Ongoing training is available through West Sussex County Council and various other professional institutions, and staff are encouraged to participate whatever their level of qualification. Our commitment to quality of childcare through constantly reviewing our training and operating standards is of great importance.
