Meet our nursery workers

Robert's story

Robert is a nursery nurse based in a south-east London nursery. He has been working as a childcare professional for 18 months.

nursery worker"I work in a pre-school room, with children aged 2 to 4 years. I’ve had my current role for four months, which is providing me with great experience. I’m keen to further my career and I’m working towards a Level 3 Diploma.

"A typical day starts with welcoming children at breakfast time. Throughout the day, children take part in free play and planned activities, aligned to the EYFS. The most rewarding part of my role is watching children develop and grow, and helping individual children meet development targets.

"PACEY membership for nursery workers is a good idea. I would find practical support such as training and sharing ideas and expertise with others helpful – I imagine there are similarities in practitioners’ techniques and challenges.

"At some point, I will be thinking about my next career move and it sounds like PACEY will be on hand to provide advice on options and ways to connect with other childcare professionals."
