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!!

Long hours,
Work here if you are happy to be spoken like dog poo on the bottom of your shoe!!! Horrible company to work for they are always shorted staffed, 9 times out 10 we are always working over ratio. Or you have to go to another nursery to help cover there, loosing out on time with your own key children.Management are rude, unprofessional and unhelpful, there spend most of their time in the office on their phones, moaning about other staff members, moan at you. There is no support or encouragement there for staff. Safeguarding issues are over looked. There is only 80p different between a nursery nurse and senior which I think is really unfair considering how much hard work goes into running a room. It’s not worth the money or the stress!!Long hours, underpaid and not wOnly benefit are you can get chance to be employee of the month (but there again the same people win it) get your birthday off, only have to work two shift over Christmas and the Christmas party. In house training from head office which is good.

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.
