No

Rated 1 out of 5

Stressful and mentally draining. You’re not appreciated or supported. Too many parents complaints, ridiculously understaffed as everyone’s leaving.

Mixed feelings

Rated 3 out of 5

Very mixed feelings about the company. Some great aspects such as quality of childcare and effort from managers etc.

some not so great such as stretched staff and rate of pay.

Fun but stressful

Rated 2 out of 5

I was on minimum wage but very stressful job as all nursery jobs will be, staff were horrible and bullies. Would talk bad about parents and had ‘favourites’. Good working hours.

Stressful and poorly managed

Rated 2 out of 5

Nurseries are understaffed, which makes an already stressful job a lot harder. hard to get support from management/HR/Head office. CEO cares more about opening new settings than maintaining/improving the ones already open.

Pros

Monday to Friday only

Cons

Stressful, long hours, low pay

Always over ratio

Rated 1 out of 5

Always over ratio.

Management are all in the same “circle” and use this against you if you are unhappy with anything.

New settings being opened constantly which means older settings get forgotten about.

Never enough staff.

What once was a lovely place to work now sees their employees as a number and the children in the setting as pound signs.
