The Staff at Maiden Erlegh Preschool, Berkshire

Our high staff ratio of at least 1 adult to every 6 children (the minimum requirement being 1 to 8), enables staff to spend quality time with individual children. Our pre-school staff are mature, dedicated, well-trained in all aspects of nursery and pre-school childcare and education and very hard-working!

All staff have Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau checks (CRB/DBS) and many hold First Aid certificates. Staff wear coloured tabard-style aprons and identity badges with their names on to let you and your child know who’s who.

Our Key Person System

Building firm relationships with parents is important to us, and when your child commences Pre-school their Key Person will make themselves known to you. They will share information with you regarding your child’s progress, on a regular basis.

Each child will be assigned an online Tapestry Learning Journal and Key Persons will regularly add photos and comments to this. Once your child has settled in at pre-school, you will be issued log-in details to enable you to view your child’s journal whenever you wish. This is a great way for you to see some of the activities your child participates in and how they are learning and developing.

In addition, any other development records we may hold for your child, will always be available for you to view, just ask your Key Person.
