A nursery nurse works with young children aged from birth to five years old in a childcare setting, usually a nursery or pre-school. As many nurseries close during school holidays many nursery nurses work term time only.
Their duties might include:
Caring for babies – feeding, nappy changing and interacting
Caring for older children – supervising meal and sleeping times, toileting, planning and supervising play activities, early education and helping children develop in all areas
