Relief Nursery Assistant in Buckinghamshire
on 23 August 2022
Good place to work
They pay more than other nurseries. There were plenty of hours available to fit around uni. The rotas are given out with very short notice for the next week, but that wasn't a problem because of my role. The staff at some nurseries had formed cliques and badmouthed other staff behind their backs, which made me uncomfortable.

Working with the kids was great.
I joined as a new apprentice, I almost completed it but I felt almost pushed out and ignored by management after I reached out for support. There was a lot of toxicity, being mostly women. But you can make some friends. If you’re willing to have no life and want a real career path with children I’d recommend something like this. But not with child base. It’s pretty bad. Only thing I enjoyed was making the children smile and teaching them things.
Unqualified Nursery Assistant in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
on 25 January 2023
Stressful atmosphere, not inclusive, low work culture
Since the very beginning I had an impression that equality and diversity among staff are not practised values. The staff was constantly having private conversations during working hours and didn't even have the courtesy to make me included. It It quite an awful feeling when it's done all the time. One of them were completely ignoring me throughout my tenure, treating me like the air. As a foreign person I could easily consider that xenophobic. Some of the management: Speaking to me few simple sentences and then ostentatious asking: Do you understand? Why would you assume that someone doesn't understand simple sentences. It's quite offensive. I'm foreign, but I learned second language and it was actually your duty to assess my language skills before employing me. You shouldn't need to ask me this at this point of my employment. Very stressful environment and you are not supported, your efforts and hard work are never admitted and appreciated. Staff constantly having issues with themselves, gossiping, toxic atmosphere, very low work culture.

Not a nice company to work for, management are extremely difficult to trust. While working here I developed a lot of anxiety and became depressed and all they done was up my hours even more and told me to go take some tablets and I'll be fine. They do not support you. Head office do not record any complaints against anyone.

Great salary rates
A great company to work for with a family feel. An immense amount of perks and benefits. The job is very fast paced and the company do have high expectations to strive to be the best in the business but why wouldn’t you want to be the best? A company to make great friendships. Training is great and developments are always being made.
