"Large Day Nursery in N#####y are looking for a Senior Nursery Nurse to work in the Baby Room. The candidate must have had previous experience in a supervisory role and be Level 3 qualified or higher. £13,500-£14,000." It's 40 hours a week or about £6.50 an hour.
That's not an assistant job. It's not even a basic Nursery Nurse job. It's an experienced senior room leader job.
I get less than that with a level 5 childcare qualification and 10 years experience. Childcare is a low paid sector, as it is based on parents ability to pay. I'm not in it for the money, I love my job.
for the poster who wonders where the money goes... wages and holiday cover employers ni rent or mortgate building insurance public liability and employers liability insurance contents insurance food utilities rates phone bill and bill for internet costs memberships of ndna ofsted annual fee any vehicle costs resources eg paper pencils equipment website running costs computer costs training costs paper towels handsoap aprons gloves the list goes on an on but you get the general idea. As the previous poster said the income to pay for wages and all the other costs is dependant on what parents can afford to pay
