So is an apprenticeship in childcare for you?

A career in childcare is demanding but fun! Your focus willhelp to provide the children with a safe environment that actively promotes learning and development. You need to be caring, patient, have lots of energy and have a real desire to learn.

It is essential that you have the ability to work well within a team. Good communication skills are vital for being able to work successfully with colleagues as well as building relationships with the children and their families. We have high expectations of our team and strive to be the best and to be proud of what we achieve. By joining us you can be assured that you will receive the very best in hands on experience.


As an apprentice with us you will learn the key skills necessary to gain a childcare qualification. You can earn while you learn, and gain knowledge in a way that is best suited to you – through hands-on experience.
