About the employer

Wellingtons for Langley Hall aims to provide children with an outstanding early years experience. They take seriously the responsibility entrusted to them by parents and are always seeking ways to improve the learning environment and the practice of staff. The management values training and will find opportunities for all staff to gain further qualifications and continue their professional development through short courses, updating practice knowledge and techniques.

All staff are expected to take part in a minimum of 50 hours training per year.

Wellingtons for Langley Hall staff understand the significant role they play in helping a child to develop and promote their life chances.

When a child is born their brain is nowhere near fully formed. In the first three years of a child’s life, brain connections are being made and this is dependent upon the experiences they encounter. Therefore all of our staff are trained to talk to children in a way that develops their language skills, to provide stimulating activities and develop children’s growing curiosity in the world around them. Staff work very closely with parents, acknowledging them as the child’s primary carer and following their wishes and requests wherever possible.
