Our Team

What makes our nurseries unique is the dedicated people who work in them.

Seesaws employs qualified and experienced staff, most holding NNEB or equivalent NVQ Level 3 Childcare qualifications.

We also operate a highly acclaimed and nationally recognized Modern Apprenticeship Training Scheme for some staff to gain both NVQ levels 2 and 3 Childcare. All staff hold certificates in food hygiene and paediatric first aid and are fully trained in Behaviour Management, Health and Safety and Child Protection.

All Seesaws nurseries are supported by a range of qualified and experienced mini bus drivers and maintenance staff, all of whom hold enhanced CRB checks and health and safety certificates.

“ A nursery is only as good as its staff and I believe we have some of the very best in the industry. Many of our senior staff have been with us since we started the company with others averaging eight or more years service.

We receive so many compliments during the year from parents who recognize the excellent care given by individual staff and for this and many other reasons we are very proud of our staff. They care for the children with such devotion and fill their days with many varied and fun activities, an abundance of love and lots and lots of cuddles.

Our staff dry tears, help children settle into new surroundings, laugh with the children, celebrate their achievements both large and small, spend countless hours teaching them new skills and take great pride in helping each one achieve new goals.

Every child has their own key carer which means staff really get to know each child, helping them become familiar and settled within the nursery and building excellent relationships with parents.”

Ofsted has also recognized the professionalism and commitment of our staff in inspection reports

“ The enthusiastic and dedicated management team has a clear vision for the nursery and along with staff create an inclusive environment where individuals are respected and valued.”
