Meet the Happy Tots Preschool Team

All our staff, committee and volunteers have been checked through the Criminal Records Bureau and hold a full enhanced CRB certificate. College students on placements must provide us with their original CRB Certificate before they can join our sessions and will not be left alone with any children.

Our staff are highly qualified in Early Years and Childcare. Staff are trained in Paediatric First Aid, Food Safety and Safeguarding Children as well as other courses which benefit the pre-school. Information relating to staff qualifications and training courses are kept in the Operations Plan situated in our cloakroom foyer. This information is available to you at any time.
