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."

Testimonials

Z is leaving to go to school and she has had an amazing time at Kiddies' Cabin. She loves being star of the day, taking part in the nursery nativity. The encouragement and support she has received throughout her time at the nursery, but especially in the Bluebell room have been appreciated. Z was especially excited to have been Star of the Week at nursery!

The nursery involves parents in their child's learning development. We have enjoyed attending the nativity and the Christmas parties!

I cannot pick out just one member of staff at Kiddies' Cabin! From Leigh and Richard who always give us a cheery welcome or wave us off in the evening, to the girls who all look after Z in Bluebell. Z raves about Saresh and Rachel. They are so kind and encouraging towards her. She is very, very fond of everyone!

We appreciate all that Kiddies' Cabin has done for Z during her time at the nursery. The staff are helpful, kind and do their very best to encourage the children’s development. It feels 'warm' and we will be sad to say goodbye for a while until our youngest joins later in 2016. We wish all the staff the very best for the future!
