Our Staff

Every Play in centre is run by a professional, highly-trained team. Each team member is qualified, experienced, and passionate, and we believe that they’re the best people to look after your children. We get to know each child in our care personally, and this is so we’re able to provide them with the tailored service that they deserve.

Only the Finest Staff

We only take on team members who are able to uphold our standards of excellence. When employing new staff we always ensure that they are properly vetted before they have contact with your child/ children. This begins with a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, and is followed up with professional development training. These things ensure that all team members are ready for the task in hand.

The Employment Process

  • Application Form
  • Formal Interview
  • Demonstration of Relevant Qualifications
  • Providing of References
  • Providing of DBS Documentation
  • Professional Development Training (Once Employment is Confirmed)

During the recruitment stage we also conduct a number of checks by following Ofsted’s safe recruitment policy. This is under their statutory requirements, and all checks are completed prior to finalising employment.

Extra Training

Alongside professional training, our team members are also given:

  • Safeguarding Training
  • First Aid Training
  • Food Hygiene Training

Working Effectively

We maintain child to leader ratios, which ensure safety and quality of care. For children under the age of eight the ratio is 8:1 and for those aged over eight-years-old the ratio is 10:1. These are in-line with child protection guidelines.
