At Kids 1st Nurseries we employ professional, fun and motivated members of staff who are committed to the care and development of young children.

What We Look For

At Kids 1st we pride ourselves on providing quality and considered care to each and every individual child, in a safe, exciting and nurturing environment. We are looking for people who can carry this vision through with commitment, enthusiasm, care and attention.

At Kids 1st we operate a robust recruitment procedure and insist that all staff are required to have a Disclosure and Barring Service check and two satisfactory references before their appointment is confirmed.

Working For Us

As an employee of Kids 1st Nurseries you will be offered extensive opportunities to progress your career with training, development and promotion. All of our nurseries have been purpose-built and are maintained to the highest standards, ensuring that you will be working in a high quality and well cared for environment.

Some members of our team have been with us for over ten years, working their way up from Nursery Nurses to Managers. At Kids 1st we are always on the lookout for rising stars and if you show the commitment and enthusiasm that we require there is no reason why you can’t excel within the company.

All new staff must complete a mandatory induction period to enable you to fully understand your role, to familiarise yourself with our policies and procedures and with the daily routines of the nursery. Ongoing supervision and training is arranged to ensure you are fully equipped to carry out your role effectively. An annual appraisal system is in place to give you clear objectives and the opportunity to develop both personally and professionally.

We are always interested in receiving applications from professional, committed and flexible staff. If you do not see a position that is suitable for you on this website please download an Application Form and send it to Kelly Walsh, Area Manager and we will keep your details on record.
