Our Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries staff are all selected for their positive, caring, and passionate nature, alongside their expertise in care that they bring. We value their diversity and the unique qualities and skills that they can bring to our family and want them to have careers and jobs that they are proud of.
We believe in working collaboratively with and for each other to create our very own Monkey Puzzle family. We always say that when you join our team you become part of the family, and this family approach transcends through everything we do for our team and the children. We want everyone to have roles and careers that they are proud of.
Personal and Professional Growth
We place a huge emphasis on self-development and growth, building skills and progressing in your careers. We carry out annual performance reviews where we celebrate the year of successes and identify targets for development in the future as well as regular supervisions every term. We work with you throughout the year to offer support and funding to complete your targets so that you can continue to grow as a person and as a professional and very much have a open door policy
If you aspire to become a leader in our team then we want you to achieve your goal! We always say any one can be a leader at any time, provided the organisation and team culture promotes freedom of expression, sharing of ideas and our team vision. We offer bespoke leadership coaching for leaders and managers which helps and supports them to be the best leader, promoting team effectiveness, positive working culture and helping people progress in their chosen careers.
We offer generous salaries and annual pay reviews to share the successes of our growing organisation with each and every team member. We also reward additional childcare qualifications and recognise loyalty to our nursery.
Length of Service Recognition
We really value longevity in your role and dedication to our team, so we offer a length of service recognition which rewards and celebrates each team members journey with us. For each year you work with you can be expected to receive additional days off and gifts to reward you for your hard work and dedication.
Social and Retail Discounts Portal
We all know cost of living is higher than it has ever been, so every little saving can help. Every employee can register for our affiliated discounts portal to receive discounts on a host of items stretching from restaurants and cinema tickets to holidays or even your next laptop.
We always want recommendations for excellent new candidates to join our team. So, if you refer a new candidate to us and they complete their probationary period, then we pay you a lump sum to say thanks for your support in growing our team.
Our Wellbeing Programme
We are always looking for ways in which our team have opportunity to rest and recuperate, socialise, bond, learn and explore.
We know that in order to get the best for our children we must also support and promote positive wellbeing in our team. We have a specific wellbeing programme designed to encourage everyone in our team to look after each other, look after themselves and look after the team.
We celebrate successes, share our appreciation and gratitude and spread the love where ever possible! We also offer individual support through any mental health challenges with a personalised approach to suit individual team members. We know that despite a passion for working with children, life has its own trials and tribulations, and we are always here to offer support and guidance whether via our trained Mental Health First Aiders or affiliated external counselling services who can support you every step of the way to have a fulfilled and happy career with us.
Staff Training and Team Building
We have 3 Inset Training Days each year, where we get together for some team building activities and explore a range of training topics relating to childcare and quality of teaching and learning. We encourage our team to champion specific areas of interest, train to learn new skills and ideas, and share this learning for the wider team at our training sessions. Do you think you have what it takes to be a leader, shine in that moment, and share your ideas and thoughts with the wider team?
Staff Social Budget
We like to always make sure that if you work hard, you can play hard too. We firmly believe that there is more to life than work and believe it is important for our team to socialise away from the workplace, whether that be at our all-inclusive festive Christmas Party, paid for dinners, activities or even a bit of group yoga after work in our nursery gardens during the summer.
