Margaret Carlile, Early Years Co-ordinator, Trafford College

Trafford College have worked with Juice since it opened. I have provided off-site training to a vast majority of staff employed on a level 2, 3 and 4 to help develop, update and improve their professional qualifications and skills.

The nursery takes on Apprentices, so providing ongoing training and a commitment to develop work skills alongside professional qualifications. This shows the commitment and dedication of both the management and the team.

Management give the team the opportunity to develop their skills and are supportive and approachable. Senior staff support inexperienced staff and provide good role models giving help and guidance at all times.

The nursery has an excellent relationship with the families providing an ‘open door’ policy and is flexible meeting parent’s requests; passing on information and building up good relationships with the keyworker system. Staff have good relationships with their key children providing individual care and a flexible approach to their learning and development.
