Meeting Expectations

When hiring nursery staff in any capacity, expectations are one of the keys to positive relationships that last.

Parents without clear expectations often struggle to know if the childcare staff is performing to their highest potential, or they don’t have clear evidence for evaluating performance.

We make sure that the nursery staff’s expectations are clear. Staff who do not know what they want or need can feel dissatisfied with their work.

Exceeding Expectations

Purple Dove works very hard to provide staff that will exceed your expectations.
