About Us

We are proud to have nursery teams of authentic and committed employees, whose friendly faces work as one to create a stimulating, supportive environment where children mentally and physically thrive every day.

Good quality childcare is evident when the children and family are truly placed at the centre of all we do and as a well-known and sought-after employer within the childcare sector we recognise it is our people that provide exceptional education and care with every child and family at the centre of all they do.

Mission and Values

We create a culture and an environment of opportunity, learning and openness, enabling all staff to have a voice and be treated with respect. In essence, we are committed to driving ownership and accountability to the right people in the right places, allowing for autonomous decision making at local levels. We lead together rather from the ‘top down’, developing practices, policies and programmes in collaboration with our teams through working parties and ensuring a culture of fun, joy, listening and learning.

Career Progression

In return for looking after our children and customers, we are constantly striving to look after our people with fantastic rewards and recognitions, career opportunities and training.

We are always on the lookout for new talent and if you are able to see the unique potential in a child and can inspire lifelong learning, then we would like to hear from you today.


Kiddi Caru and Dicky Birds Day Nurseries provide premium quality childcare for children aged between 0 – 5 years. Each of our state-of-the-art nurseries are carefully designed to maximise the care, play and learning environment for each child in our care. One of the fundamental principles behind the success of Kiddi Caru is that we grow our own talent.
