Working as an Early Years Professional is one of the most rewarding jobs you can do. It requires intelligence, adaptability, creativity and - perhaps  most of all - a great sense of humour! To do the job to a high standard - and to establish a career in the profession - requires you to earn a qualification.

If you have an interest in earning a qualification to work with children, you could find no better place to start than with us at Blue Grass Purple Cow Nursery.

We are committed to encouraging new talent - young and old - to come into the profession. So our Apprenticeship Programme is well-established and well-respected. We have even won an award for our supportive and professional approach to helping our Apprentices to gain their qualification. 

More than 20 people have begun their career working with us as an Apprentice. Most have gone on to establish long and successful careers with our Nursery - some even going on to become one of our amazing Deputy Managers! With a Level 2 and then a Level 3 qualification in Early Years, you can work with children in any professional child care setting and you can even work your way into Management, if you have the right attitude and acumen.

Could our next new Apprentice be you?

All you need to do is email us -- -- to let us know that you would like to know more about our Apprenticeship Programme. We can tell you all about how we work, what are the advantages of an Apprenticeship can be,  how long it will take you to qualify AND how much you might earn as a wage. That's right, you can earn a wage whilst earning a qualification!

To qualify, you need to have at least completed your High School Education. Grades A-C in English and Maths are preferable but not entirely necessary. You need to live in easy commuting distance of our Nurseries in Disley, Cheshire or in Hayfield, High Peak.

This is a full time commitment for people who wish to earn a qualification. It is best suited to young people entering the next phase of their professional training, though it is not limited to people in this situation. To be considered however, you must be prepared to earn your qualification whilst earning an Apprentice wage and this would need to be your first Level 3 qualification.

We look forward to hearing from you!
