"You are all such special people and we are very grateful for all you've done for Josh." - Josh's mum and dad.
Our staff are very special and go the extra mile to make your child's time at Sunbeams a great experience.
Our Manager holds an Early Years Teacher Status, the gold standard in childcare qualifications.
Sunbeams now has two Forest School leaders.
The family room and pre-school rooms are headed up by staff with at least NVQ level 3. The manager and deputy manager are supported by a strong team who all have your child's best interests at heart.
At Sunbeams we generally work above the ratios legislated by the EYFS.
The required ratios are:
0 - 2 year olds : 3 children to 1 adult
2 - 3 year olds : 4 children to 1 adult
3+year olds : 8 children to 1 adult
All staff are First Aid trained as is required by the Early Years Foundation Statutory Framework and all take part in on-going training courses, keeping their skills up-to-date All staff have clear DBS checks. Staff are involved in continuing their professional development by gaining qualifications or attending Dorset Early Years Support and Holt Heath Teaching Alliance short courses to keep their professional knowledge up to date.
As a setting of good reputation we take the opportunity to share our good practise with students from local colleges and schools. These students are always fully supervised and are in addition to usual ratios.
