The qualifications vary and are as follows: Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS), Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), Bachelor of Education, Montessori Diploma, NNEB, Early Years Educator, NVQ Level 3, Level 3 and 5 in Management of Early Years or an Overseas Diploma (equivalent or higher).
All our staff have been very closely vetted by Pippa Pop-ins and references taken for the security and the welfare of your child. All have had Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks and they all complete a 12 hour Paediatric First Aid Course whilst at Pippa Pop-ins.
Pippa Pop-ins encourages their staff to continue with their Professional Development and sponsors training courses.
Continuity of Care
Pippa Pop-ins does not run a shift worker system. All our staff are employed on either a full-time or part-time basis so your child will have the continuity of the same teacher throughout the week, unless they do a mixture of sessions. If a teacher is unwell or unable to come to work, a member of our own team (cover teacher) will take their place.
