All staff at Orana are early childhood trained and maintain current First Aid Certificates (including asthma and anaphylaxis). All staff members also undergo appropriate probity checks to ensure that they are not Prohibited Persons as described in the Child Protection Prohibited Employment Act 1998. Staff members regularly attend in-service training to maintain our preschool’s level of excellence.
