Nursery Assistant in Manchester City Centre
on 1 October 2020
Team work mostly
I have learnt how to deal with SEN children and also I had minimum 150 online and in practice training about all aspect of childcare. I started my apprenticeship level 3 course and mostly finished. Workplace culture has provided for all ideas and opinion as most of people were happy and didn't had any concern about their background. I am applying for another job because recently my hours is reduced and I need to be full time.

Great on paper
Bright Horizons have all these motivational sayings, policies etc. which look good on paper but in reality aren't actually followed. They are a global brand who only care about FTE's and making money. We're told we're more than just a number, but thats a lie! Staff with mental health issues are given print outs to read and left to get on with it!They talk about professional development and having regular supervisions with managers. Yeah, that doesn't happen. I don't find I've actually ever had a supervision in my 7 years. As for 1-1's and appraisals, I've had one. My manger is constantly busy dealing with other things, than actually supporting the staff. Health and safety has gone mad, to the point most of the day is filling out paperwork and takes us away from what should be the most important part, they children. Resources are limited and strict policies mean that the staff lack motivation to come up with new exciting experiences, as we're always told no.

Management is appalling.
There is no policy for the day to day roles, so selected members of staff do as they please. However, if I try to do something which was correct, they will always disagree with my ideas.

Fast pace, Outstanding and competitive.
Large outstanding nursery, high expectations and fast paced. One of the main qualities is how diverse the nursery is, through children and staff. Standards are very high, therefore the pressure is sometimes overwhelming.
