A team of Early Years experts

We know how important it is for you that the right person is caring for your child.

That is why our process for recruitment of staff is extremely robust and ensures that only the best Early Years practitioners work in our nurseries. Our Nursery Managers have over 50 years combined childcare experience. Our team is comprised of passionate, committed and attentive people - from level 2 up to level 6 practitioners - who put their heart into delivering the best education to your child.

Training and development is important to us, because we know that care and learning go hand in hand. At Buttons we are committed to developing our nursery teams so that we maintain the highest standards of Early Years education and set the benchmark for high quality care. Our training is based on respected theories underpinned by current research from the UK and beyond. We believe that quality care and education is dependent upon well informed, professional staff, who are passionate and inspired by the work they do with children.
