Our highly trained and experienced practitioners

The practitioners at the Willow Tree are carefully chosen to ensure your child receives the highest standard of care and education during their time at nursery. Highly qualified practitioners are selected for their experience and caring attitudes towards young children. All our practitioners are committed to providing equality of opportunity. Children's individual needs are extremely well met by our caring and considerate practitioners who take valuable time in getting to know the child and their family.


Each room has a highly qualified practitioner leading the team and together they plan and provide a safe, caring, educational and fun environment for your child. We employ a fully qualified Teacher who also holds a degree in Early Childhood Studies. In addition a Health Visitor is also available onsite to offer advice and information on current practices.


Our Ratio's are a minimum of:

1 adult to 3 children for 0 – 2's
1 adult to 4 children for 2 – 3's
1 adult to 8 children for 3 – 5's
1 adult to 8 children for 5 – 12's
