Nursery HR Services

At Engage HR we understand the people challenges of owning and running nurseries. Having a great staff team that is performing to the best of their ability is crucial to delivering an outstanding service for the children and parents and ultimately having a fully occupied nursery that parents aspire for their children to attend.   

Some of the things we can support with are:

  • Updating policies, procedures and employment contracts in line with statutory requirements
  • Managing short and long term absences to ensure nursery ratios are maintained at all times
  • Managing under performance to ensure the children get the very best support and education
  • Ensuring recruitment processes help the nursery to recruit only the best staff at the right time, that are fully suitable to work with children
  • Effectively managing staff grievances and conflict to ensure the smooth running of the nursery
  • Adequately completing investigations and disciplinary hearings in line with safeguarding requirements where necessary
  • Supporting staff who are pregnant or on maternity/paternity leave 
  • Reviewing flexible working requests to ensure nursery staffing ratios are maintained
  • Support to create an environment that is free from bullying and harassment
  • Creating a succession plan to provide a pipeline of talent for future vacancies 
  • Having appropriate supervision and appraisal processes to keep staff engaged and performing to meet the needs of the nursery 
  • Helping with staff retention/engagement projects to give consistency to the children
