teamPlease ensure that you meet the team so that you can put a name to a face from the minute you first enter Scallywags!

Our team ranges from new recruits who are training with us to team members that have been with us since day one in 1995. It is important to note that Scallywags does not have a high turnover of staff and the team consists of many mature practitioners with families and responsibilities of their own, who have worked at Scallywags for a number of years providing continuity of care for your children and your family.

The staff provide a warm friendly atmosphere and the development of your child is encouraged at their own pace. The staff provide activities to stimulate each individual child through play and other activities including music, outdoor play, stories etc.

Each year the staff contribute to our ongoing business plan by devising individual plans to develop their own units.

Staff at Scallywags are qualified with diplomas in early years or equivalent qualifications, some have degrees in early childhood studies foundation or above. We also employ qualified teachers and we are also a training facility for Early Years Professionals and the University. Staff are also trained regularly in first aid, food hygiene and safeguarding.

The staff are humorous, amiable and loving with the children who very much enjoy their time at nursery. A key-worker system is in place for all age groups. Your child’s key-worker is responsible for documenting your child’s needs and progress and can talk to you about any concerns you may have with regard to these aspects of your child’s care and education.
