Meet Our Staff

We have 11 members of staff at Birch Hill Pre-School. All have various qualifications and many years experience in childcare.

Most of our team of friendly staff are parents themselves and understand what an important time this is for you and your child. We can assure you they will do their utmost to ensure the transition to pre-school is as smooth as possible. 

As well as gaining qualifications in early years care and education, the setting staff take part in further training to help them to keep up-to-date with thinking about early years care and education.

The setting also keeps itself up-to-date with best practice in early years care and education, as a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, through the Under 5 magazine and publications produced by the Alliance.
