Working at Quackers Day Nursery & Pre-School in Chieveley, Newbury is not like working in many other settings. We believe that everyone is equal and no matter your position within the company, no one is expected to do something that their Manager would not.


We try to be as flexible as possible and we want all our staff to feel part of the Team. We also like to say “Thank You” as much as possible to our Team Members and you can often find our Owner in the Kitchen making breakfast for the Team, maybe a bacon sandwich or croissants or in the summer a BBQ for lunch.

If you are dedicated, hard working, caring, responsible and want a career in childcare is what you are after, Quackers Day Nursery and Pre-School can offer you the opportunity to realise your goal. Despite having a VERY low turnover of staff with many of the Team having been here for years, we are always on the lookout for talented new Team Members to come and join our family.
