"The effort you go to is so visible in the events you organise and the everyday activities you do. Mostly, it is watching the children run into nursery that shows what a wonderful job you are doing."


"I am so happy that my son is a confident chatty boy and I know that all the love and attention you gave him has contributed to this. Whizz Kids is a lovely setting and my son has flourished here."

Policy on Staff Appraisal and Staff Supervision

Staff appraisal will take place in the Summer Term each year and will consist of a one to one meeting between the member of staff and the nursery manager.

Prior to the meeting each member of staff will be given a letter advising of the date of the meeting, and inviting them to consider the following pointers which can be discussed in the meeting:

  • Immediate improvements which could be made in relation to this individual’s job.
  • Immediate improvements which could be made to the nursery.
  • Longer term improvements which could be made either to the nursery or the individual’s job.
  • How the individual would like to see the job develop in the coming year.
  • New areas of work or responsibility that the individual would like to take on.
  • Any difficulties which the individual is experiencing in the work.
  • The nursery manager will bring forward any issues that are felt relevant to the work of the particular member of staff and will make notes on the discussion which arises.  A copy of the notes will be given to the member of the staff shortly after the meeting.
  • If as a result of the meeting specific action is considered relevant, a date for the action to be completed will be set, and the member of the staff will be informed of this.  Where necessary a date for further meeting will also be set.

In order to improve the quality of care an effective Staff Supervision takes place on a termly basis.

“Supervision should provide opportunities for staff to:

  • Discuss any issues- particularly concerning children’s development or well-being;
  • Identify solutions to address issues as they arise, and;
  • Receive coaching to improve their personal effectiveness”
