Things to consider

Childcare is a very demanding industry, with long hours and early starts. It requires you to be active for the majority of the day. It is also a very rewarding job, as you will have an invaluable impact on the development of the children.


About the employer

Tiddley Tots nursery was set up in 2011 by two sisters.
We are from a very close family background and take the same approach to running all our nurseries.
 
We have experience in childcare as well as being parents. We decided to build the kind of nursery we would like our children to attend – a home from home. Our three children attended the nursery and provided us with the best quality assurance available.

We aim to treat all the children who attend the nursery as if they were our own, that is one way we know we are doing it right. Our fundamental aim is to provide a setting filled with happy children, healthy children. A place where children can learn and have fun.
