All our staff here at Little Acorns undergo regular professional development courses and most are Paediatric First Aid trained (this is renewed every 3 years). All our staff are trained to NVQ Level 3. Each child is allocated a Key Person, so that they are able to build a close relationship with the parent and child and consequently help fulfill their emotional and educational needs. Each Key Person also completes a ‘Learning Journey’ for the child, which you are able to access.
