I get on with everyone who works there and learn new things every time I work. The most enjoyable part of the job is building relationships with the children and seeing them develop.

Undering no circumstances send your children here, management don't care about the staff let alone the children, children are kept outside for 3-4 hours as their isn't enough staff for rooms to split, each child get £1 budget for their meals throughout the day so a £1 for breakfast, lunch and snack, this nursery is all about a show and how much money they can make

The nursery was a big nursery with an increasing number of children and staff on role. The opportunity to extend professionally was available and the team of staff were fun to work with. Management was always supportive with other staff member s and always willing to improve services they provided for children to maintain a good learning and development throughout.
Pros
hot lunches
Cons
long hours

Most awful nursery I have worked in. The induction, by head office which was given to new staff, was amazing! However, management have no clue how to run a nursery. Both manager and deputy left the nursery to have a meeting at Costa, leaving the nursery without a safeguarding lead. They talk to staff rudely, even in front of parents, and the way they talk about staff in the office for everyone to hear (including parents) is disgusting. I really wish head office would have come down more often, as this is a new nursery. This nursery is declining fast, and am not surprised staff are already leaving.
Pros
Staff are amazing with the children
Cons

Majority of the time the senior management are brilliant. Assistants within the room are brilliant at their job and often fun to work with. The senior staff will work with those who require additional support such as depression or anxiety to ensure work does not impact your own health. Children and families are wonderful and senior staff often happy to work shifts around your own family life. Hours can be long but pay is pretty good for a childcare setting. Lack of training due to costs involved for company is frustrating.
Pros
flexible senior staff
Cons
Poor training short lunch breaks on long shifts
