The nurseries are all registered by Ofsted (The Office for Standards in Education) under the children’s Act as a day nursery for children between the ages of three months and five years. The nurseries are subject to regular unannounced inspections by Ofsted and all reports are available to read on the premises and on-line.
Tenderlinks recognise that the most important bearing on the happiness, health and safety of our children are our practitioners. We do not take recruitment lightly, and it is important to us that all of our staff show experience, aptitude and the ability to fit well within our environment and amongst our children.
All of our team are formally qualified and their qualifications include (either or both) the following:
- BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Education
- NVQ Level 3 or above
All staff undergo enhanced DBS checks before they can work with the children. In addition, two references are taken up prior to starting work with us as well as a rigorous induction into the setting.
New employees are also assigned and experienced practitioner as a mentor to help settle them into their new role. All members of our team undergo regular safeguarding and paediatric first aid training.
The nurseries also appoint key workers to each child and each member of staff has the responsibility for an identified group of children. Every effort is made for very young children, in particular, to spend the majority of the nursery day in the care of the same adult. We find this key worker system helps provide continuity of care.
The nursery operates the following ratios:
- Age 0-2 – 1 member of staff to three children
- Age 2-3 – 1 member of staff to four children
- Age 3-5 – 1 member of staff to eight children
