Meet the team Rosehil Playgroup

All staff are experienced and work cooperatively together to aid the running of each session. All required training is up to date and staff development is actively encouraged, supported by annual appraisals.

Regular staff meetings enable all staff to be involved in the playgroups organisation and improvement. Evaluation of the effectiveness of activities is ongoing. 

The playgroup staff have a positive attitude and approach towards diversity. Staff work closely with parents, liaising with other childcare or health professionals if required, to ensure children with any additional needs receive appropriate support at an early stage. Children from a variety of cultures attend the group and several speak English as an additional language.

Staff establish trusting partnerships with parents and two-way communication is encouraged, which promotes children’s welfare and continuity of care.
