- TR7 3EY
St Columb Minor Pre-School LTD is managed by a team of highly qualified, caring and experienced staff.
All of our staff undertake regular training; first aid, child protection and food hygiene are mandatory. We also have staff trained in special needs, sign language and behaviour management.
On joining the setting your child will be allocated a Key Person. This grouping involves a member of staff taking responsibility for a specific group of children. Children are allocated a Key Person according to their age; the groups are yellow and purple (pre-school groups) and red, green and blue (non pre-school groups i.e 2-3yr not going to school in the next cohort).
We promote the role of the key person as the child’s primary carer in our setting. The key person works with the family to plan and deliver a personalised plan for the child’s well-being, care and learning and will also be responsible for necessary observations, assessments and record keeping helping them reach their full potential.
