We aim for our staffing levels to exceed the statutory requirements for staff to child ratios in order for our staff to carry out their role to the best of their ability.
We consider ourselves to be an industry leading Nursery employer. Our staff are our most valued asset and as such we compensate you competitively. Furthermore, we recognize individual efforts of outstanding performance and we are pleased to reward each member of staff accordingly, through our bonus incentive scheme where staff can expect to earn up to an additional 10% per annum. In addition, we offer a variety of extra staff benefits, for example free wholesome lunches, complementary team building events, other corporate discounts and an employee assistance programme.
We invest significantly in our staff development keeping them up to date with current research, childcare and education trends in a variety of ways. First and foremost, we offer onsite training with our Early Years Team and other renowned expert consultants as well as external training opportunities.
We review the needs of each of our staff individually on a regular basis and identify their training requirements to enable each member of our staff to develop through agreed personalised targets, this enables them to fulfil their potential and implement the very best practice that training can empower them with.
Bright Little Stars is a friendly, supportive and innovative company; we were recognised for our accomplished work at the LEA Awards of Excellence 2017 and are the proud recipients of ‘The Teresa Graham CBE People Award’. Without the hard work and dedication of our fantastic staff such a testament would not have been possible.
