The Early Years and Childcare Manager:
Emma Roome – Foundation Degree in Early Years & NNEB in Childcare,
Each club is run by our qualified team-leaders
Infant’s Team leader:
Ruth Steadman- NVQ 3 Qualified in Childcare
Junior’s Team leader:
Wendi Armstrong – NVQ 3 Qualified in Preschool Practice
To support the team leaders we have a group of dedicated contracted staff, the majority of whom are also working towards childcare qualifications. These are the familiar faces you will see around both of the clubs regularly.
The majority of our contracted staff have been with us for in excess five years and are given an award when they reach 10 years of service.
88% of our contracted staff have Level 3 or above Childcare qualifications and 50% of our ‘Bank Staff’ have Level 2 or above Childcare qualifications.
As well as our contracted staff we also have a group of ‘Bank Staff’. Although you may not see them as regularly as the other members of staff, these people have play-work experience and provide our team with extra support when it is needed.
The staff are instantly recognisable by their coloured polo shirts bearing our logo. Playworkers wear blue shirts, the Team Leaders wear red shirts and our Childcare Manager Emma can be spotted in her purple shirt.
Any concerns regarding childcare should be addressed in the first instance to Emma Roome, Childcare Manager on 07722 853709
