Work for us

The Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust nurseries are friendly, professional environments to work in where staff are given the opportunity to develop their childcare skills and progress their careers.

We have medium sized friendly nurseries where the staff know each child and their family well and our nurseries have an excellent reputation within the local community.

The staff teams are strong, supportive and caring and there is a low staff turnover.

There are a number of benefits to working for Kiddies' Cabin nursery.

These are some of the comments made by Kiddies' Cabin staff about why they enjoy working in the nursery.

Rachel joined the nursery in January 2015 as a Nursery Nurse and by September of the same year she had become a Team Leader. She "really enjoys working with the children and as a team. Everyone works well together and there is a bubbly working environment."

"Having a large organisation behind me that can provide various forms of training to support my professional development is a benefit of working for BHFT."

And the benefits of working for Kiddies' Cabin - "A great team that works together to give the service users the best possible care needed for each individual."

Chrystal joined Kiddies' Cabin in September 2013 "I went from being a volunteer in the nursery to an apprentice and then a Nursery Assistant." She "Enjoys getting to work with different staff members."

What does Chrystal feel are the benefits of working for BHFT "A good pension." and of working for Kiddies' Cabin "Lots of natural resources for the children. The nursery provides a stimulating environment for the children."

Charlotte joined the nursery in May 2014 as a Nursery Assistant and she is now a Team Leader in the Daisy Room.

She enjoys "Working closely with the children and parents." "Being part of a team, helping others." and "Watching the children grow and develop."

Charlotte feels that the benefits of working for BHFT are "A reliable company with good training." and "Good job / career prospects and good working hours."

And the benefits of working for Kiddies' Cabin "Nice children and parents", "Well organised, a good team, a good position in the nursery." and "A focus on the EYFS and training courses."


I has enjoyed playing in the outside areas with a variety of different toys. The things that she has made and brought home have been lovely.

Charlotte and Maddy have been consistent members of staff during I’s time at the nursery and she has built up a good bond with them.

When asked if the nursery represents value for money Mr and Mrs R said yes due to the excellent level of care.
