Staff’s need to have the skills to work confidently and safely. Staff’s need to be familiar with the Policy and Procedures of the OSCAR Programmes, including an awareness for the working environment. Health and safety information will be discussed at staff meetings where staff will be informed of all health and safety policies and regulations.

New Staff will be required to read the Policy and Procedure Manual. If there are any parts that the staff member does not understand, the supervisor will work with that person to ensure the staff member is clear on what is required.

New staff will be encouraged to study the Out of School Care & Recreation course through Open Polytechnic.

Little Feet Childcare Centre OSCAR programmes supports and encourages staff who wish to extend their knowledge in areas pertaining to their job.
