We have a friendly and experienced team of staff here at Kings Sutton Preschool.
All of our staff receive regular training in child care and how to best promote children's development including first aid, safeguarding and food hygiene training. Staff are supported to attend as much wider training as possible as part of their ongoing continuous professional development to ensure your child receives the best possible care and education.
