Our Staff

Conkers prides itself on employing highly qualified and motivated members of staff, who work together as a strong team, which enables us to provide the highest quality care for your child. All staff attend ongoing training, have first aid and child protection.

Each member of staff is based in their specialist room working with a certain age group. Each member of staff will have key children with whom they work in partnership with you the parent/carer so they get to know each child and build a strong bond with their key children and family, providing a child centred curriculum / play plan.

As conkers is a small open plan nursery, the children can see into each room and know all the staff who work in the nursery.

The Learning Journey

The Unique Child

Each learning journey follows the personal learning path based on each individual child's likes, interests, experiences and offers individual challenges.
