The nursery manager is supernumerary and covers breaks / holidays as appropriate. There will always be at least two members of staff present at all times whilst there are children on the premises. All staff are CRB checked. We are registered with the Care Standards Inspectorate for Wales.
At present we cater for 31 children at one time.
This is set into groups as follows:
6 babies aged 6 weeks to approx. 18 mths
Staff ratio 1:3
9 toddlers aged approx.18 months to 2.5 years.
Staff ratio: 1:3/1:4
16 children aged approx. 2.5 years to 5 years
Staff ratio: 1:4/1:8
These are CSSIW regulations. However, we always aim to have a higher ratio of staff.
