Staff and Key Persons

Meet the Staff and Key Persons

Here at St Hubert’s pre-school we have a successful key Person system in place. Children are placed in to their key groups and this allows them to build strong and positive relationships with their key persons. All of the key persons have a great relationship with each other and are always continually working towards creating a nurturing and reflective setting to help your child to achieve their fullest potential. Relevant Disclosure and Barring Service checks are carried out on all members of staff and volunteers regularly.
