Job roles within a Nursery

  • Keep a watchful eye on children’s behaviour, encouraging shy children to participate in activities.

  • Communicate and participate in training days, staff meetings, and activity days.

Do I need Qualifications to work in a Nursery

If you are just starting out in your childcare career then you might be wondering whether you need any qualifications to work in a nursery, the answer to that is no depending on who your employer is looking for. Most employers will hire someone who is unqualified but who has the relevant work experience and a good background education (A*-C GCSE’s)

Below are some requirements of a Nursery Nurse

  • Experience working with infants and young children, preferably under five years old.
  • You will need a good level of GCSE qualifications, especially in the core subjects.
  • A DBS check will be carried out to ensure you have no criminal records. This must be done before you can work with children.

Work Experience vs Qualifications

To improve your chances of landing a Nursery Role, having work experience is a must! Your employer will value this greatly as it shows you have dealt with children hands-on and have been in real life situations. Even though having a qualification isn’t necessary, in some cases, it will make you stand out from the crowd. Qualifications can vary from a simple BTEC in Nursery Nursing to a National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB) Diploma.
