For everyone who works at Doodle Do Day Nursery, child care and learning and development for 0-5 year olds, is a vocation.


Because we believe attending a day nursery should give children a head start in life, we set high standards for our staff. All staff included in our official ratios are expected to be qualified to at least NVQ level 3 or actively working towards it.  We expect a commitment to continuous personal growth and in return we work in partnership with our team members on their personal development through on-going coaching, time off for studying and appropriate internal and external training.


Our staff are not allowed to work with children unsupervised until they have been Enhanced CRB checked and 2 references have been received.
