Working in the childcare industry is a very rewarding career choice. Not only do you get to play an important part in the life of the children, but you also watch them grow and develop whilst learning new things yourself each day.
At Tops Day Nurseries, we recognise that our colleagues are our most valuable asset. They make the difference between standard children and the exceptional childcare we pride ourselves on. For the Tops team, there is always an opportunity to progress, whether it’s new training courses or promotion. We have our own in-house training team allowing colleagues to achieve qualifications from level 1 to 5 in childcare, team leading, and management. If a Tops team member decides that they want to widen their area of expertise, we also provide opportunities in business administration, and customer service, as well as courses in first aid, health and well-being, and safeguarding, as well as many others. The possibilities are almost endless!
A variety of internal courses such as Age Specific Training, Tops Forest School Training, and Behaviour Management, are also available to colleagues and are provided by the Tops Day Nurseries operations team, who have years of knowledge in the industry. Our Ops team are always delighted to share their experience with the rest of the team, and the board of Directors work closely with the nursery practitioners to offer the best practice possible. Even the Managing Director, Cheryl, doesn’t keep herself separate. We are all a team at Tops, and Cheryl actively visits the nurseries and pitches in. All nursery practitioners and managers are directly involved in decision making. After all, we need to work together to provide the brightest future for our younger generation.
Training opportunities for our colleagues are frequent and diverse, but that’s not the only reason becoming a member of the Tops family is a fantastic choice. We’ve put together a few reasons why working for Tops is so great!
