Meet The Staff

The Wooden House is arranged in separate ‘classrooms’. Each room leader is responsible for their group of children and is able to offer individual care and attention made possible by the high ratio of staff to children.

All our room leaders have a minimum qualification of NVQ Level III or equivalent.

We attend regular training courses and we aim to have all our staff qualified in First Aid with a sound knowledge of Safeguarding procedures.
