Teachers & Ratio

Teachers at Belmont Farm Nursery School

At Belmont Farm Nursery School our Teachers are highly qualified and experienced.  The qualifications vary and are as follows: 

Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS), Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), NVQ Level 3, Level 3 and 5 in Management of Early Years or an Overseas Diploma (equivalent or higher). 

We pride ourselves on supporting professional growth and developing our staff.

We have a rigorous interview process and trust that all our staff bring with them dedication and experience to their roles. Staff have completed Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks and joined the updates service; which keeps their DBS live and up to date. All staff have also completed a 12 hour Paediatric First Aid Course.

All our staff are employed on either a full-time or part-time basis so your child will have the continuity of the same teacher throughout the week, unless they do a mixture of sessions.  If a teacher is unwell or unable to come to work, a member of our own team will take their place.
