40 hours a week = usually an 8 hour shift say 8-5 with an hour lunch break sometimes we do 4 shifts of 7-6 and have a day off in that week as we will have done our 40 hours - it’s flexible on what the nursery needs
Average shifts total 9 hours (including 1 hour lunch break).
E.g. For a nursery open 8am-6pm the usual full day shifts are: 7:45am-4:45pm, 8am-5pm, 8:30am-5:30pm and 9am-6pm.
