The nursery family is a special place for you to develop your career in early years

As an employer and provider of early years educations, we have retained that family feeling and this is what makes The Nursery Family a great place to work.

We only employ people who are passionate about childcare. When you join our family you will instantly feel the caring spirit. It’s always been like this, we are hardwired that way.

In order to make each day unique for our children it involves hard work from lots of different kinds of people doing all sorts of different jobs. Our team are the heartbeat of our company, all our colleagues are passionate about working with children and seeing our little learners grow and develop – this helps create a wonderful environment to work in and exceptionally high quality care and education.

At The Nursery Family, we believe in looking after you and experience tells us that if we do, then you are better equipped to look after the children and families that place their trust in us each day.

We believe that it’s important to feel challenged enough in your role that you find it rewarding and supported enough that you are always able to tell us what you think and share in the open and honest culture that we value.

The passion we have for high quality experiences in the Early Years is infectious and our children thrive in our busy, inspiring and professional environments. You can’t help but want to join us and be the difference in a child’s earliest experiences of life and learning.

Our CEO, David Hancock, has a very simple view on why The Nursery Family is such a wonderful place to work and for children to spend time. He spends plenty of time in the nurseries speaking to all the team members; he recognises that the foundations of The Nursery Family are its people, so hearing their voice regularly is vitally important.

His vision for the children comes from personal experience…

“As a child in the 1970’s I was raised in rural Nottinghamshire, on the edge of Sherwood Forest. The world was regarded as a safer place than today and we were allowed to wander off and play for hours on end in the forest and fields – it was a dreamy time and I have deeply fond memories of playing hide & seek, making dens in the forest and… just wandering around in the fresh open air.

Today our world is full of fear and distrust with risks that were unheard of back then – many children will never get to experience the wonderful things that I took for granted, I want to change that and create a childcare business that enables team members to become part of a family who are devoted to nurture and care for children and deliver inspiring fun learning activities; indoors, outdoors, in town and out of town.

I share my memories with my son and daughters all the time (they have even visited and enjoyed the places where these memories were created) and now we pass all of that down to my wonderful grandchildren to ensure they get their full quota of memorable fun and learning.

When a child leaves the nursery for their next step in life, our challenge should be to ensure they take with them wonderful memories of the fun things they experienced, memories to share with the next generation”
