At Torridon Education Group we have a team of fun, caring, dedicated, enthusiastic nursery practitioners who are committed to staff training and development. All our staff team hold recognised qualifications in childcare or education at supervisor level or equivalent, and many hold degree level qualifications. The centre's manager – Lauren Hayward holds a ‘Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Studies’ and a ‘Bachelor of Arts in Childhood Practices’.

Everyone within Torridon Education Group is committed to providing quality care and education. A list of the qualifications of all our present staff is displayed within each nursery. A staff training record is completed which outlines courses and training that all staff have undertaken. You may ask to see this at any time.
