We are totally committed to staff training and development. Our staff are our greatest asset and, as such, their development is financed and nurtured accordingly. Good training helps foster personal growth and development; making you better at what you do!
Training is an on going factor used to ensure staff are engaged and up to speed with all things nursery related. At The Orange Tree Day Nursery we pride oursleves on regular training, both in house and external, to ensure our staff are are up to date with everything from the latest games, songs and Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines (EYFS) to health & saftey and first aid.
A more confident, better skilled, productive and more motivated workforce ensures quality and creates an enjoyable working environment for all involved.
We encourage our staff to look for different ideas on training opportunites that could bring something new to the nursery. This opens up new and fresh stimulus which benefits the staff, children and parents alike.
Staff who work well together as a team creates a happier and more productive environment. We arrange at least a couple of get togethers each year where all of our nursery staff meet up for a meal, or a fun day, etc. This helps to strengthen the bond between staff members across the nurseries making us one big team.
We have just had a staff party with a giant inflatable obstacle course, BBQ, pizza and games, finishing off by camping overnight in the Mickleover nursery garden! Check out the photos below which show some of the fun we had!
