Staff at the Vale nursery


We have a dedicated reflective team of staff, and when a child joins our nursery, one staff member will become your child’s key person. This means they will oversee your child’s personal, social and emotions needs. They will also observe, encourage and help develop your child’s learning by providing rich and interesting play opportunities.
