Our Staff

To comply with Ofsted regulations at least 50% of staff must hold a recognised childcare qualification; at Little Stars we meet that requirement.  All staff regularly attends training sessions to ensure we maintain a high standard within our pre-school.

All staff working at Little Stars have obtained an enhanced DBS Disclosure and Barring System. All staff hold current and relevant safeguarding qualifications which are refreshed annually.

With regards to staff to child ratios we operate within the regulations set by Ofsted:
1 adult: 4 children aged 2-3 years
1 adult: 8 children aged 3-4 years

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements where a Qualified Teacher, Early Years Professional or other suitable level 6 qualified person is working directly with children aged three and over as follows:
- there is at least one member of staff for every 13 children; and
- at least one other member of staff holds a full and relevant level 3 qualification
