Staff at Meithrinfa Chwarae Teg Nursey and After School Clubs

Here at Chwarae Teg we believe that continuity of care is paramount in a child’s time at Nursery. This is why we have the same staff working with the same age group, even our part time members of staff. By having the same staff that the children recognise, can assist in building bonds and attachments with their carers.

Each age group at Chwarae Teg has a Senior Member of staff working with them, and alongside the other staff in the room. The Senior Staff oversee all the planning, activities, developmental records and day to day running of the Nursery.

All our staff are qualified with qualifications ranging from Level 2 in Child Care Learning and Development to a BA (Hons) Degree in Childhood Studies. All our Senior Staff have a minimum of a Level 3 qualification and additional certifications in things such as First Aid, Food Hygiene, Child Protection and Promoting Positive Behaviour. We also have a small number of Nursery Assistants working with us, who have extensive experience in child care and are working towards their qualification.
