Playgroup is fortunate in having such a dedicated team with a wealth of talent and experience. All our staff are first aid trained (or waiting to be trained) and have undertaken child protection training. Our full time staff have all received curriculum training on the Early Years Foundation Stage. A more detailed list of staff qualifications is available at Playgroup.
All staff are committed to taking part in on-going professional development.
I have worked at Wheathampstead Playgroup for over four years and enjoy that we are a part of the community.
It is important to me, as well as the rest of the staff; that the children in our care thrive and enjoy their time with us. I am passionate about ensuring that each child grows and develops to the best of their abilities and this is done working alongside families and by providing a safe secure environment for everyone.
Playgroup Deputy Manager
Special Needs Coordinator
I have worked at Wheathampstead Playgroup for over twenty years and in that time have seen many changes in the way the curriculum is delivered.
In 2006 Hertfordshire County Council awarded me the Contribution to Early Years and Childcare Profession award. My passion and expertise is in supporting children who have additional needs and importantly their families. I support staff members in assessing and planning for any key child they might have who has an additional need.
