Building Strong Foundations with Kids Inc Nurseries


Excited by the support they have received by Realise, Kids Inc Nurseries is gearing up to expand their apprenticeship programme through 2023.

On a mission to provide exceptional childcare:

At Kids Inc Nurseries, their mission is to provide exceptional childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years, spread across thirteen nurseries in the vibrant city of London. They firmly believe that the early years of a child’s life should be enjoyable, rewarding and positive. That’s why they foster an environment where children can have fun while actively learning through play.

Their amazing staff are central to this ethos:

Central to their commitment in delivering this ethos are their amazing staff members. Kids Inc Nurseries are dedicated to building a professional team of passionate childcare experts. To achieve this, they have partnered with Realise to offer top-notch apprenticeship training.

Stevie Deeble, the Operations Manager at Kids Inc Nurseries, shares: “Currently, we have twenty-three apprentices across our thirteen nurseries, all working towards their level 2 early years practitioner or level 3 early years educator apprenticeships. Some of our apprentices are approaching the end of their training and preparing for their end point assessment. It’s been incredible to witness their growth as they’ve developed into confident individuals, forming strong bonds with our children and their parents.”

Stevie continues:

“They have become highly valued members of our team, and we’re excited about their future careers with Kids Inc Nurseries. Some apprentices are eager to pursue higher-level apprenticeship training, while others are seeking progression within our company, taking on greater responsibilities in their roles. In fact, we already have 28 apprentices enrolled for 2023 as part of our ongoing staff development plans.

“Our apprentices are constantly learning, bringing fresh ideas and an unwavering passion in their work. Their genuine love for early years education shines through, even amidst the challenges of working in a bustling nursery while completing their apprenticeships. They consistently go above and beyond our expectations.”

Excellent role models:

Each year, Kids Inc Nurseries hold an annual Chirstmas party where they recognise outstanding achievements with the Nursery Practitioner of the Year Award. In 2022, several of their apprentices received this prestigious honour, showcasing their hard work and dedication to the children and their families.

Apprentices are highly valued at Kids Inc Nurseries. They acquire crucial knowledge, skills and behaviours throughout their training, which they seamlessly apply from day one thanks to the excellent role models provided by their existing staff.

Praise for Realise

Stevie Deeble continues: “The support we have received from Realise has been exceptional. The managers are hands-on, providing guidance and ensuring our apprentices achieve their goals within a realistic timeframe. Communication is paramount, and we appreciate that everyone at Realise is readily available to discuss progress, address concerns, and provide daily updates via email or phone calls. We hold monthly meetings to review the progress of all our apprentices, and these meetings involve the Performance Manager, Operations Manager and Operations Director. This level of dedication from the assessors right up to the Operations Director clearly demonstrates their passion for delivering the best for our apprentices.”
