The role of apprentices at Tops Day Nurseries


We have over 200 apprentices working at Tops Day Nurseries, across all 20 of our nurseries. But what does this mean to our children, parents and carers?

We have received feedback that parents and carers are not sure what apprentices can and cannot do at the nurseries, so we wanted to share this with you:

Did you know..?

  • Apprentices undertake a full induction, have a mentor, and work for 35 hours a week.
  • They receive 3 hours training a week with an assessor or on an external course, and undertake reviews every 4 weeks.

All our apprentices are looking to start their career in childcare, and having hands on experience in our nurseries is invaluable towards their development.  A high number of our childcare apprentices stay with us once they qualify, meaning that Tops Day Nurseries can benefit from their knowledge and existing understanding of how best to develop the children in their care.

If you have any further questions about the role of an apprentice at our nurseries, please speak to the nursery manager.
