meet our staff

Educators at Bambinos Montessori Nursery are warm and friendly staff.  They have been carefully selected to join our team to ensure that our children's interests come first.  All Staff have First Aid training and continue their childcare interests by attending relevant courses such as Special Education Needs, Makaton training, Health and Safety, Food Hygiene and Safeguarding courses to name a few.   We have also appreciated 'parents as helpers', This has been a positive reflection on our practice promoting excellent communication with parents and good relationships with all parents and carers; This has been awarded outstanding practice by OFSTED.   

As part of our recruitment process, you will be reassured to know that we have strict guidelines with our process following the statutory requirements set out by OFSTED.  We begin by receiving up to date CV's followed by a telephone interview.  If successful we then invite the candidate for an interview.  This involves a quiz of important safety and childcare knowledge questions, a face to face interview with our Management present, a full in depth look at their work history and knowledge is made.    Once this is complete we will hold another interview stage to discuss work policies and commitments.  Each new employee will carry out a 6 month probation period.  During this time we regularly hold induction meetings, termly supervision meetings and have a yearly appraisal with all individual members. Criminal Record checks are also carried out prior to employment commencing and ongoing termly checks are made.  All registered parents and carers are able to view this along with staffing qualifications.    

We follow government regulations in staff to child ratio.   At current these are as follows:


children aged
3 years -5 years


children aged
2 years -3 years
