Our Childcare Team

Our Childcare Team

The commitment and experience found within our staff team at Honeybuns is a large part of what makes us exceptional in the quality of care we provide. Our team is passionate about building individual relationships with our children, and understands that each child is unique.

At Honeybuns, we invest in our team and recognise their commitment to our nursery and your children. We work closely with outside training providers to support their professional development in every area of their work.

Our management team lead by example, and motivate our staff by demonstrating a strong work ethic, which in turn provides an exceptional working environment, and allows them to provide outstanding care, learning through play and development opportunities for your child.

Under ‘The Safeguarding Vulnerable Children Act 2006’ suitability is checked through obtaining an enhanced criminal records disclosure in respect of every person working directly with the children. Effective systems are in place to ensure that children are kept safe at all times. Staff must disclose any convictions, cautions, court orders, reprimands and warnings that may affect their suitability to work with children (whether received before or during their employment at the setting).

We follow Ofsted’s guidelines for our child / adult ratios, however our staff ratios are often higher.

  • 0-2 year olds          1:3 staff
  • 2-3 year olds          1:4 staff
  • 3-5 year olds          1:8 staff
  • 3-5 year olds          1:13 staff (where a staff member is qualified to Early Years Professional Status)

All staff hold relevant Childcare Qualifications at Level 2, 3 or above, along with certificates for Child Protection, Paediatric First Aid, Basic Food Hygiene and Food Allergens.
