At Riverside our staff have always been our greatest asset. They are chosen for their integrity of character, enthusiasm and a sincere wish to care and guide your child. We achieve the high standards we have set ourselves through vigorous selection procedures and training programmes.
All staff are interviewed by the owners and the nursery manager and provide two independent references. All potential staff are thoroughly vetted which includes the necessary Ofsted and police checks.
All staff are required to attend an induction and training programme. The qualified and experienced nursery manager and their supervisors,head a team of lively and energetic staff.
They ensure the safety and well being of each and every child is paramount in the minds of all members of staff at the nursery. Our nursery is staffed by a nursery manager, a deputy nursery manager, senior nursery nurses and nursery assistants on a ratio of 1:3 for children under the age of 2, 1:4 for children aged 2 to 3 and 1:8 for children aged 3 to 5.
All our staff hold or are working towards Basic Food Hygiene, First Aid and Child Protection certificates.
