Some roles of working in a Nursery

  • Create development programmes for key children making sure their files are kept up-to-date.
  • Undertake domestic tasks such as cleaning equipment and making snacks for the children.
  • Liaise with parents and managers regarding children’s development.
  • Take part in staff training days and staff meetings.
  • Provide a caring learning environment for the children to develop their skills.


There are many different qualifications that you can gain. However, it isn’t necessarily a must-have among some nurseries. Depending on the nursery you might not need any qualifications if your background education is good and you have the relevant work experience. Higher roles within Nurseries may require you to have a qualification.

Requirements for a Nursery Worker

  • Work experience with infants who were five years old or younger.
  • Have a good quality of previous education with GCSE qualifications (A* - C for the core subjects).
  • A DBS check will need to be carried out to make sure you don’t have any criminal records and making sure you are safe to work with children.

How to get my dream Nursery Job

To get a nursery job, you must either have experience or a relevant qualification. To improve your chances why not have both? Having work experience shows you have hands-on experience in the workplace, and having the right qualifications will also give you an edge to show that you have studied in the particular area of work, even if your employer isn’t looking for anyone with a qualification it looks good on your CV. To give you the edge over other applicants why not check out some of these qualifications: BTEC in Nursery Nursing, Level 2 Early Years Education & Childcare qualification, Level 3 Diploma in Pre-School Practice or the National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB) Diploma.
