The children at Footsteps are cared for by dedicated and well trained staff who are encouraged and supported to continue their professional development. With all staff given the opportunity to access training in higher level childcare qualifications, management, Special Educational Needs and Safeguarding. We expect all our staff to either be qualified to Level 3 or training towards a Level 2 or level 3 qualification. In addition to the in house training that we provide, all staff who are willing and able are supported to gain higher level qualifications.

The qualifications that we support include; NVQ Level 4 and 5 in Childcare, NVQ Level 3 and 5 in management and Early years.


Although our staff retention is very good, job opportunities do arise across the nursery group. We only accept applications from the highest caliber of candidate; regardless of your current level of qualification, you must be professional, dedicated and punctual with an excellent attendance record at your previous employers. You must be willing to give the children the highest standard of care as well as the learning opportunities they deserve and be equally comfortable changing a nappy, going on a welly walk or taking part in our fun themed days.
