Meet the Team-Funfishers Out of School Club, Nursery & Pre-school
The present employees of Funfishers are employed and qualified to work across the whole setting. We have structured teams that work within a designated room, alongside their key children.
During holiday time we also have additional, flexible staff to work alongside our full time staff members.
Children need to feel safe and secure within their environment and having familiar staff at each point in the day is an effective way of doing this.
The Manager is responsible for recruitment and training of suitable employees for the setting. Funfishers is always pleased to welcome Volunteer Playworkers.
The Manager and Committee has provided an action plan for staff training and all permanent employees are required to train to NVQ, Level 3 or equivalent. The Management Committee authorised a range of core training for all staff, as well as personal development training for permanent staff, including the Manager, during 2007. Training will always be delivered by recognised bodies.
