Step 6 – All staff complete an initial induction programme where you will be fully supported by a mentor who will introduce you to your new role.

The induction is the start of your learning journey at the OSH and an important and valuable part of ensuring that you have time to absorb the day to day running of nursery and have a clear understanding of your role and responsibilities. Regular one-to-one meetings with your mentor will ensure that you are able to receive regular feedback on how you are doing and identify further training and development needs if required. 

"Staff training is amazing – all staff are motivated, caring, efficient and have excellent childcare skills."


It's not a training ladder more of a training scramble net! People can develop their careers in lots of directions; you can be whatever you want to be.
