Our staff

At Woodlands we know that a good team makes all the difference and has the greatest influence in the smooth running of the nursery – and at Woodlands we are proud to have an extremely close and competent team of experienced long serving staff. We have a very low staff turnover and rarely employ agency staff as we value the contribution made by each member of our permanent staff. This ensures that you and your child are welcomed at the start of each day by a friendly and familiar face.

At Woodlands we have a good understanding of what good quality childcare entails and to this end staff are encouraged to expand their knowledge with continued professional development, both internally and externally, as this benefits the nursery and ultimately the children that come to us.
