Meet the team

At Kiddie Capers, we have an enthusiastic team of Early Years Practitioners who are committed to providing the highest quality care for our children. Our practitioners are selected following a rigorous recruitment process, during which we consider qualifications, experience and commitment. All practitioners have access to a wide range of training programs throughout the year, enabling them to continually build on their skills and knowledge, we pride ourselves on the high qualifications of our staff team and always exceed Ofsted’s requirements of at least 50% of staff members must hold a Level 2 qualification. Although the requirement is for only one person Paediatric First Aid qualified, to be on site, we aim for all our Practitioners to be First Aid trained.
