With a sound understanding of Safeguarding and the EYFS all members of the team are committed to providing a high quality service to delivery school readiness, parenting and aspirations and child development.   In addition we expect all members of the team to develop and maintain effective working partnerships with all stake holders which include parents, Health Services and Early Help Practitioners.

We are forward looking, ambitious with a commitment to continuous improvement. We are a people focused, can-do organisation, which strives for excellence in all we do and operate. If you share these values and have the necessary skills then we look forward to hearing from you.
