All of our key staff are well qualified and experienced and all adults working with the children on a regular basis have enhanced DBS checks. We have five members of staff across our two preschool rooms. In addition, we may have extra members of staff working as one-to-one support to particular children, students on placement or work experience and regular volunteers. Please check the notice board outside the office for photos of the adults on site.

Under Fives Roundabout is run by an elected committee, which ensures that major decision-making is in the hands of the parents who use the groups. The committee is responsible for reviewing both policy and practice, the employment and appraisal of members of staff, fundraising, and many other tasks that ensure the smooth running of our groups. Our Annual General Meeting at which the committee for the following year is elected is held in October, however new members are welcome at any time of the year.
