Congratulations to our Kitchen Staff - Food Allergy Awareness

Food Allergy Awareness Certificates
We would like to congratulate all of our kitchen staff on coping with a major change that has impacted on the childcare industry. From December 2014 national standards applying to on site kitchens – like those run at Pennies – have changed and all staff are required to be accredited to Level 2 Food Allergy Awareness or above. There is a version of the relevant course offered specifically for the childcare industry and we are happy to say that all of our staff completed it on time and have been accredited to national standards. Children, parents and others visiting the nursery should notice no change in our service and our practice of working directly with families to take into account the needs of children with specific allergies remains unchanged, but we would like to commend our staff for the additional time put in and the hard work that ensured everyone passed this important course at their first attempt.
