Join our Buttercups family!

Buttercups believe that a well-cared for team results in well-cared for children. That is why we strive to offer our staff every opportunity to develop with us and reach their full potential. We offer in-house and external training, including in some more exciting childcare disciplines such as Forest School Leadership. When you join Buttercups you join the whole group, so you have career opportunities across our eight nurseries.

We offer competitive salaries, we have a wellbeing centre, an EAP programme and all employees receive a wide range of discounts in high street shops as well as having fun social events. Our annual Christmas party gives the whole of Buttercups a chance to get together and celebrate our successes and achievements.

We also believe in listening to our team. As the people who are closest to our children we know how important your views are. We encourage staff at all levels to suggest improvements and every year we conduct a full staff survey. We recognize the hard work and efforts of our employees by showing our appreciation through vouchers, thanks and praise.

But the main reason to join the Buttercups team should be a passion for childcare. At Buttercups we are committed to delivering the highest standard of care: from the gentle nursing needed when they are very small through to challenging and guiding them as they approach their school-life. We are looking for people who share this devotion to inspiring and developing young minds.
