Nursery Deputy Manager in Purley
on 26 March 2021
It’s go go go
I started Fennies in 2019 as their deputy manager. It’s a fast paced nursery with high expectations. There are times for laughter and jokes which is to be expected working in early years. I have an amazing team who support me and pull together when it’s really needed. The senior managers are on call when you need them and offer a helping hand if you need them. There is room for growth and progression which is a bonus and of course we have some amazing little minds that we have in our care

Really a company to skip
This company has very high staff turn over, with very few loyal staff remaining. It sadly lost its sight of what is the core of childcare, the care of children. Sadly It cares for nothing other than making money and meeting legal requirements and won’t go above and beyond. They put on a good front but behind the scenes, all staff are replaceable so are told to shut up and get on or leave. They don’t take safeguarding seriously, staff talk inappropriately in front of children and mangers do nothing. Staff are lucky if they’re a managers favourite. Staff are paid differently, less qualified being paid more than senior staff. Managers come and go just as much as the rest of the staff. Staff work long hours, pay penny’s and with very little thank yous. Staff are passionate and caring but not looked after. Honestly it’s one to miss, worst company to work for, much better ones out there.

Progression
Working for Fennies has helped me to start to develop and improve my career, giving me the opportunity to expand my knowledge of the childcare sector and start to work towards gaining my Level 3 qualification. It has also given me the chance to see where I am able to progress when fully qualified.

Not good
The staff is very selfish and management only like certain staff and won’t support everyone. Staff get away with stuff they shouldn’t. No care for staff.

What a place to work
Working in Fennies is very fast-paced you’ll never be bored as there’s always something to do, at times it can be very stressful but the children and the bonds you form with them definitely make it worth while. When you have a good team to work with it’s a lovely place to work but there are times when it can be the complete opposite. Management aren’t always the best to work with but are okay at times.
