Our Nursery Staff

Sonja, Christine & Pam

Management Team

All our nursery staff are qualified in the areas they lead in.

Here at Dream Big Little One we put paramount importance on training and ensuring that everything we do keeps our little one safe. All our team members have up to date Paediatric First Aid qualifications and annual Safeguarding training.

Our aim is for nursery to feel like an extension of home and family. Many of our nursery staff have children of their own and ensure that the care and love they give is what they would expect for their own little ones.
