You will need to wear your college uniform or all black clothing. Footwear should be appropriate and safe for nursery work – black flat comfortable shoes, or trainers are permitted. Jewellery should be kept to a minimum and tattoos covered.
Each branch has a nursery manager and room leader in the setting to guide you through nursery life, showing you ways to get involved and how to interact with children. We encourage you to ask questions to the other nursery practitioners to develop a deeper understanding of the practice observed.
