Childcare and Education
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Bright Beginnings believe that good quality staff are the most important resource. Staff are valued and are encouraged and motivated. Individual opportunities are supported through the provision of appropriate and relevant training opportunities. The centre closes for 2.5 training days per year at Easter, June and December as it is very important to train as a whole staff team.
Members of staff hold a range of childcare qualifications including BA Hons, Early Years Professional Status Foundation Degree, EYPS, Nursery Nurse (NNEB), BTEC and Level 2/3 NVQ qualifications in Childcare. All staff are vetted to ensure they are a suitable person to be working with children following DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service).
NDNA e-Quality Counts
E-Quality Counts is the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) Premium Quality Improvement scheme. Bright Beginnings achieved a Level 3 which was the highest possible achievement in 2012. Bright Beginnings were assessed again in October 2015 and was once again awarded a Level 3 in November 2015.
The e-Quality Counts criteria reflect the most up-to-date legislation, policy, research and curriculum, including changes to the EYFS for England, and we are absolutely delighted with our grading.
