My interview was very good and was given a variety of situations to answer. The staff were very friendly and welcoming as soon as I walked in the door. The management were very friendly and professional, which made me feel even more comfortable and confident, as i can get very nervous and anxious. It is a lovely company to work for and would highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys the best experience of working in childcare.

I have only been with Tommies for a short time, however, I cannot explain how welcomed I have been made to feel, it can only be compared to walking into an extended family. The benefits offered are extensive, the support is incredible and all levels of staff are very professional. I have found Tommies to be an extremely happy place to work but above all the care given to the children is exceptional. I am so pleased I made the decision to join the ever expanding team and am excited about my future with them.

An terrible place to work your just another number to the manager, they make you feel bad if your ever off sick and basically tell you that you must go in, they don’t care about the welfare of staff at all it’s a horrible environment to work in with all the back stabbing that goes on and they have an unrealistic work load as the manger said if you don’t fit they manage them out

I had never done childcare until I worked for tommies and it was the best choice I made. The support that you are given throughout the company is much appreciated by all. Tommies is a big family, they take the time to get to know you as an individual as well as a team and also as a company wide team. The opportunities and career progression that is widely available and encouraged within the company is brilliant and you are supported through out.

As with most jobs had advantages and disadvantages. I worked at one of the smaller settings the company owned. Overall not too bad and team members made the job worthwhile.

I have worked for Tommies Childcare for 4 years and can honestly say it is the best company I have every worked for. Tommies Childcare go over and above for their staff team offering them extensive training and a very exciting benefits package. Throughout my time at Tommies Childcare I have worked in various sites and can honestly say that our staff teams are fantastic. Not only are they passionate about what they do, they bring excitement and new ideas to their roles each day. Staff are also given a voice within Tommies Childcare which allows all staff to contribute to the success of the organisation. This was recently noted when entering the Times Top 100 Companies and being ranked one of the Best Smallest Companies to work for. As Times Top 100 is all about engagement, we were delighted to see that the staff team themselves feel engaged and love working for such an innovating organisation. Moving to Tommies Childcare was the best decision I ever made and I am so thankful for all the opportunities and experiences they have offered me.
Pros
Brilliant benefits package, extensive training opportunities, family run business, Succession planning offered for all staff, promotions available within the organisation due to various sites

Everyone at Tommies Childcare is so welcoming and friendly. i have had lots of support since starting here and been giving lots of training opportunities too. Tommies like to see there employees achieve new things and be the best at what they do. The management team listen to what the staff say as they understand that with out the staff who are hands on the company would not function properly.I love the homely feel that Tommies provides and this is what make Tommies stand out for me. Everyone is hands on both in the settings and at head office and staff are constantly recognized for there achievements and going above and beyond.
Pros
staff benefits

Have been working for Tommies for the last few months and have to say they are a very good company to work for. Having worked for a larger organisation you tend to get lost in the company however here at tommies they really do pride themselves in how they look after their employees. Been amazing few months working for Tommies.

I look after a 4yr boy with autism. My 1:1 role is fantastic, I'm learning more and more. I have taught him Makaton, PECs, flash cards, numbers, colours, describing pictures in books, I love it! The staff are so nice, they don't treat me as an outsider, I feel involved and part of the team.
Pros
The amazingly clever young autistic boy!
Cons
Travelling to Coventry
