Lovely staff but poor management and low pay.
Staff and children within the nursery are lovely. Some members of management aren't too bothered. Pay on Indeed is false advertisement, as pay was lowered when I started job and handed contract to what I was originally told.

Horrible management
Frequently getting treated like muck on the bottom of you’re shoe by management and other staff, they gossip and bad mouth behind you’re back with management and it’s all laughed off like it’s a joke, always finding petty reasons to have you in the office and belittle you,And then pressuring you every week to do more overtime because they are constantly understaffed as nobody wants to work for them by choice!overall the stress of the job and fear of everyone there is not worth the extra pence they give you on top of the minimum wageAvoid it at all costs!!

Awful, wouldn’t recommend it to my worse enemy
No time for your life. If your ill you will be dragged out your house or made to feel guilty and will get a angry phone call. Always a stressed environment, unhelpful management. If your not a purple shirt they don’t care if you quit, cry, disappear, as long as they have staff. Not worth it if you were paid decently but that would even take a miracle it self. Never have a break, mental health will not even be a thing. Never paid for your work, need to give all your life for free. Please do not, it’s not worth it. Many other opportunities out there.

Rewarding place to work
Being able to work with the children to give them a variety of opportunities gives you so much happiness and love to want to expand your career. Footsteps have a wide variety of opportunities for career progression and company benefits.

Highly recommend this company
I have worked at Footsteps for five weeks now and I couldn't recommend the company enough. I was made to feel welcomed by all staff and supported by management within my induction period. My manager is very easily approachable, supportive and has made me feel valued within this short time period of working for Footsteps which I feel all reflects within the team and contributes to their performance. On site training is given and lots of opportunities to continue professional development within the company. Hard work never goes missed and staff are highly valued within this company with lots of incentives and awards given to show their appreciation. Since working here I have been made to feel a part of a team and feel lucky to be working for a company that thrives to ensure that staff are content and happy as well as delivering outstanding childcare. The thing I enjoy most about my job is the exciting activities we offer the children that most other settings don't such as exploring forest school and new environments. Also, the supportive team I am apart of that work together collaboratively to deliver outstanding childcare.
