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.

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."

Kiddies' Cabin provides excellent care for my daughter, has great indoor and outdoor facilities and offers a good variety of food - she loves going there!
The staff are so resourceful - they have unlimited ideas for new crafts and activities and keep the children completely occupied. They also have a great sense of humour and have lots of fun with the children. All of the staff are friendly and make time for you should you have any questions. They know each child and their parents, and the key carers especially have an in-depth knowledge of each child's personality, likes and dislikes. This helps ensure transitions between rooms are smooth and well informed.
There is excellent daily communication with parents, which offers great harmonisation between nursery and home life, and monthly newsletters provide a broader overview of the whole nursery and advise of future events!
In short, Kiddies Cabin' helps to produce happy, confident and well-mannered children and we will have no hesitation in sending our second daughter there too!
