Aston University Nursery and Pre-School has a team of highly qualified and dedicated staff. Each of our Nursery Rooms are led by a Room Leader who along with the Nursery Business Manager and Deputy Nursery Manager make up the Senior Management Team. The Room Leaders lead a team of experienced Nursery Nurses, all of whom hold a relevant child care qualification of Level 2 or above or are working towards. We employ a team of Casual Staff that are used to cover staff absences. As with the rest of the team, our casual staff are subject to our stringent vetting procedures. All potential staff go through our selection and recruitment procedures during which references are obtained and an Enhanced DBS Check carried out.
All staff complete Paediatric First Aid shortly after starting at the nursery and this is updated every three years. Aston University Nursery and Pre-School works closely with many other professionals within the early years sector who can provide advice, support and assistance to parents and practitioners when needed.
