Meet the Team

At Shapes Day Nursery we are committed to the ongoing professional development of all our staff to ensure they reach their full career potential. We regularly attend safeguarding, paediatric first aid and food hygiene training.

We have a nursery SENCO – Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator who with parents’ permission will liaise with professionals (e.g. Speech & Language Therapists, Health Visitors) to support your child’s development.

We have a nominated ‘Speech and Language Champion’ who is responsible for promoting the importance of excellent communication within the nursery for the benefit of all our children. The Speech and Language Champion has the tools to measure children’s speech, language and communication skills and to respond to the needs of children and their families by providing support when needed.

We also employ a highly trained office manager to deal with day to day queries, monthly invoicing and funding queries, so your questions are answered quickly and without distracting the nursery team from caring for your child.
