Our Staff

At St Joseph's Pre-school we have some long established and experienced staff on our team.

There are fourteen staff in total who work with the children. Most staff work part-time but there is usually eight staff per session working with the children and one on non-contact time, which means we have a higher than standard staff to children ratio. We also have volunteers who help/work at the setting plus an Admin Assistant and our Cleaner/Caretaker who also assists with lunch time supervision.

The Centre Manager is full time, qualified to level 6 and has Early Years Professional Status.
