  • At Bright Little Stars we go above and beyond to ensure our children learn from a diverse team of Early Years professionals. Early Years has one of the most gender-imbalanced workforces, therefore, we are privileged to be signed up to the Men in the Early Years Charter which shows how we value our male team members, from our Trainee Apprentices through to our Qualified Teachers.

    Supporting Men in the Early Years brings many benefits to our children and this can also contribute to a more holistic, nurturing environment.  Having men in the setting provides children with a more accurate reflection of the gender mix of their community and the world around them. Male practitioners can provide a positive male role model experience and can also help reduce the attainment gap by having men championing and encouraging learning which may help developing a more positive attitude towards education.

    Children can benefit from the different experiences and caring styles men bring to our profession. Research suggests gender difference in relation to attitudes to healthy risk taking with men allows children more freedom to take on new challenges which children respond positively to, in addition to the variety of input through a range of activities which are challenged in different ways.

    By being signed up to the Men in the Early Years Charter, Bright Little Stars, are showing that we value men’s potential to make a positive contribution to the children we are privileged to care for.

    Alex – Assistant Room Leader

    Having completed a work placement aged 15, I instantly fell in love with teaching and caring for young children. It is incredibly self-rewarding to know how much of a positive impact you have in a young child’s life; the random conversations you may be involved in with, the touch of creative activities you are freely able to provide, the skills you are continuously learning to apply and understand – it is these things that I love most about working in Early Years. Since working with BLS (September 2017), it has only made my love of the field grow and I have also been able to complete my Early Years Initial Teacher Training. BLS has given me the opportunity to showcase my strengths in providing outstanding learning opportunities for every child. I am in a workplace who takes pride in enhancing skills and knowledge of every practitioner which in turn made me more confident. It makes me feel valued as an individual to know that my needs are being met in being the best possible teacher I can be in the field of education.

    Nick – Nursery Educator

    I joined BLS in April 2021 after leaving the beauty industry ready to take a step further in utilising my Early Years qualification. I want to make a difference in our society today and I enjoy watching the children grow and develop their own personalities. BLS is the first nursery I have worked in and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to build a career with the company; I feels at home here! The team are so welcoming and I love how amazing the benefits were compared to other nurseries. I feel valued and listened to by the BLS management team and would love to progress further up the career ladder. I already feel I have changed as a person due to the children and staff here at BLS, it has really opened my eyes to wanting to do more, such as higher-level qualifications.

     

    Jonathon – Nursery Educator

    It is important to have men working in the Early Years alongside female staff as society needs to recognise that men equally have the capacity to nurture and help develop a child’s mental and physical skills to the same high standard. In my own experience I have found that some children at the early stages of settling at nursery have felt more secure when I have been around to support them. I have felt very supported by my Management Team, since joining in September 2016 as they have always believed in the principles of the MITEY.

     

     

    Toby – Assistant Nursery Educator

    I wanted to work in Early Years because I want to support children and help them achieve their fullest potential, to ensure they have as good a start in life as possible. A man in early years also serves as a positive role model for children, especially for children who may not have a male role model in their life; likewise, we can be equally caring and supportive. What I enjoy most about working in this industry is that every day offers something different with the children, whether it is through the activities they play and join in with or speaking with children during their play and making them laugh. I am always grateful to see the children smiling when I am around, knowing they appreciate me being there with them as well as the gratitude of their parents when we discuss their progress and their day. I joined BLS in May 2017.

    Zak – Assistant Nursery Educator

    I wanted to work with children because I like seeing them grow, develop and being part of their journey. Making them smile is the highlight of my day and building bonds with them brings joy to my working life. I joined BLS in 2019 and have grown as a person in confidence. BLS has given many training opportunities from studying Level 2 in Early Years, First Aid, Behaviour support and lots of external as well as internal training opportunities. This has helped me to further develop my practice and my career. I am happy to come to work every day and love working with such a brilliant team, I feel valued and appreciated through all the praise I receive, as well as the additional perks through BLS benefits.

     

    Ayesh – Nursery Educator 

    Working with children is a very rewarding role and I love seeing each child progress and form bonds with others, this is the main reason I work in Early Years. I feel I am a great role-model when working with children and I really enjoy listening to their conversations. I love working at BLS and being part of their team/family. I really enjoy working in all rooms and getting to know all the children and I have even had the opportunity to support at our other sites. I joined BLS in September 2021.
