Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A fairly good place to work. Supply work was available quite often. Sometimes staff weren’t very polite or helpful, other than that it’s a nice place to work.

I get on with everyone who works there and learn new things every time I work. The most enjoyable part of the job is building relationships with the children and seeing them develop.

Awful, do not send your children here

Undering no circumstances send your children here, management don't care about the staff let alone the children, children are kept outside for 3-4 hours as their isn't enough staff for rooms to split, each child get ÂŁ1 budget for their meals throughout the day so a ÂŁ1 for breakfast, lunch and snack, this nursery is all about a show and how much money they can make

fun place to work

The nursery was a big nursery with an increasing number of children and staff on role. The opportunity to extend professionally was available and the team of staff were fun to work with. Management was always supportive with other staff member s and always willing to improve services they provided for children to maintain a good learning and development throughout.

Pros

hot lunches

Cons

long hours

Awful work environment

Most awful nursery I have worked in. The induction, by head office which was given to new staff, was amazing! However, management have no clue how to run a nursery. Both manager and deputy left the nursery to have a meeting at Costa, leaving the nursery without a safeguarding lead. They talk to staff rudely, even in front of parents, and the way they talk about staff in the office for everyone to hear (including parents) is disgusting. I really wish head office would have come down more often, as this is a new nursery. This nursery is declining fast, and am not surprised staff are already leaving.

Pros

Staff are amazing with the children

Cons
