At Kids Academy Childcare, Staff training is vitally important having won a number of training and development awards to maintain a high quality of childcare education. Upon gaining employment within our day nurseries and preschools, staff are placed on an a 3 year training programme. We see it as our duty to ensure that all staff are highly trained to provide childcare to parents who place their trust in us to educate their children.
To enforce this, staff complete in depth appraisals covering all nursery policies and Ofsted standards. From these, individual training programmes are devised which are monitored and reviewed monthly. An individual training matrix tracks all the courses they have attended or need to attend.
Regular in-house training sessions are completed through our monthly staff meetings as we promote a positive learning culture throughout the group.
We access many courses through the Warrington Sure Start partnership, with which we ensure staff are fully trained in child protection, first aid, birth to three matters and the foundation stage curriculum.
Our day nurseries and preschools are closely linked to the local colleges, with which staff are supported in their training courses, assisting tutors with observations and assessments.
Kids Academy are fully committed to providing career opportunities for our staff. We offer full support with many different types of training and always look to provide further career opportunities within the group. All senior positions are promoted from within the group.
