HR and Health & Safety are significant issues for any nursery business, so when we started dot2dot, Croner were a natural choice to provide support in these areas.

As specialists in the Early Years Sector their knowledge is very impressive, so when the Croner-i Early Years Management Toolkit was launched in 2007 we worked together to incorporate this into our package.

Going forward, we’ll continue to develop our offerings with Croner, covering areas such as training, audits and Health & Safety reviews and taking our partnership with this quality organisation to the next level.

Customer Feedback

“Running four nurseries with over 80 staff has its Human Resources challenges. I needed all my senior managers to be skilled and confident in making decisions without always having to involve me at every stage. I spoke to Jackie at dot2dot and she arranged a meeting with Croner where we discussed my exact needs.”

“The training took place within my setting and was delivered by really friendly and professional trainers who related everything to the nursery environment. The topics covered were Managing Investigations and Absence Management, Personal Effectiveness and Conducting an Effective Appraisal.”

“All the senior staff came away empowered and more able to tackle any situation and with the necessary tools to better carry out their role. It also gave me the reassurance that in my absence they’d be confident to do so. As such, I’d highly recommend this training provider to other nurseries.”
