Our Staff

Our staff loves working with children and nurturing young minds through play and 
one-on-one interactions. Our teachers participate in continuing education throughout the year that helps them foster new ideas for cirriculum, crafts, activities and teaching techniques among other things.

Our Expert Childcare Staff


Our experienced and highly qualified staff ensure that every day is fun, interesting and rewarding here at Toad Hall Children's Center.

All our staff are friendly, approachable, caring and strive to provide the best possible care for your children. Our team has a wide range of skills and experience that range from Degree level to the DCF 45 hours training but have been selected because of their passion, commitment and positive attitudes to childcare.

All of our lead teachers have recognized qualifications that exceeds the minimum DCF requirement. Each team member is background checked.

Our Director is responsible for the day-to-day running of the center, supported by our Assistant Director. A member of the  Management Team will always be on duty during the opening hours of the center. All of our staff are required to be certified in Pediatric CPR and First Aid. 

All our staff are committed to improving their skills and at Toad Hall Children's Center we offer our staff both 'refresher' and new course opportunities. We value our staff, and providing further training will enable us to continue our commitment to you and your child.
