People are vital to the success and efficiency of Derwent Stepping Stones and we see it as our responsibility to ensure that each individual in our staff team is enabled to fulfil their potential.
There are many benefits to working in childcare; your days are never the same, the job is active and challenging, and you get to enjoy watching children grow and develop under your care, to name just a few. At Derwent Stepping Stones, however, we recognise that people have needs, desires and responsibilities relating to both their work and personal lives and want to keep a healthy balance between work and personal fulfilment. We are committed to the welfare of our staff and to providing the tools and environment that enable them to enjoy balance in order to give our children high quality care and education.
Work can have a positive impact on an employee’s health and well-being, and healthy and well-motivated employees in turn have a positive impact on the effectiveness of the organisation. It’s therefore completely in our interest to make sure our staff are well looked after, able to continue progressing their career, and feel fulfilled and satisfied by their work. We provide staff with important early years training and additional benefits to thank and reward them for all of their hard work.
