Our Team at The Toddler Inn includes Administration Staff, Childcare Professionals, our Cook, Parents and Students. All staff are Garda vetted and hold current early childhood first aid certificates and are expected to complete Child Protection training, Manual Handling, Food Handling & Fire Safety training provided by the service.
Childcare Staff also hold FETAC Level 5 Childcare qualifications as a minimum although some staff have completed Level 6 and degree courses. In addition some staff are trained in Montessori, Social Care, Highscope and in other teaching methods. Staff are also involved in an ongoing training program working to Siolta standards. All of our staff work as a team and are encouraged in their training and personal development through support and supervision and in house workshops provided on a regular basis throughout the year. This enables us to provide the highest quality of care to all of the children here at our centre and a healthy work environment for our staff.
Administration is made up of the Operations Manager who is both a Childcare Professional and has considerable experience in a managerial role. And the Centre Supervisor, who is also a carer within one of the rooms at the facility. The Admin team is backed up by the company Directors who regularly meet with the Operations Manager to discuss quality, staffing, maintenance, finance and growth.
We facilitate students on work experience that are studying a range of childcare courses. These students work at The Toddler Inn, shadowing our staff, gaining practical experience and learning how to build relationships as well as the professional skill needed to enter the work force.
Parents – Partnership with Parents is an integral part of our caring team. The Toddler Inn maintains a high level of commitment to the families at our service and, for this reason, we wish to ensure that they have regular contact with us through Manager/Parent Meetings, Record Keeping, Open Days, Parents Evenings, BBQ’s and Social Events. We operate an excellent communication policy ensuring all our parents have direct access to and interaction with all members of the team.
