So you’re interested in a career in childcare?

Here at Kids Allowed, we’re passionate about delivering the best possible childcare and achieving our primary purpose of “Making Children Happy”.

We are offering apprenticeships to enthusiastic individuals as an alternative to college. An apprenticeship where you can ‘earn while you learn’ and be a part of the Kids Allowed family.

We are a multi-award winning local company and have an established track record in providing the highest quality apprenticeship programmes for school leavers. Through our award winning training Academy, we support apprentices to gain their  Levels 2, 3 and 4 qualifications in childcare.

Why choose an apprenticeship instead of College?

At college, you do a lot of classroom training and a little bit of work experience. As an apprentice you will do most of your learning “on the job” with a much smaller element of classroom training at our Academy. In the same time it would take you to gain your childcare qualification at College, you will gain the same qualification in the workplace, you will have been paid and you will have gained lots of hands on experience! If you feel ready to start work, we feel there is no better way to gain your qualification in childcare than with Kids Allowed.

What are we looking for in an apprentice?

We are looking for people with a great attitude to join our team, someone with a thirst to acquire new knowledge, as well as a passion for childcare and working with young children. There really is no greater privilege than working with children to give the next generation the very best start in life.


As well as helping you obtain your childcare qualification, those who haven’t obtained GCSE C or above in Maths and English, can be supported to obtain their Functional skills qualifications.

Where would I work?

We have Childcare Centres in Cheadle, West Didsbury, Stockport, Macclesfield, Wythenshawe and Knutsford. Each year we take on up to ten apprentices at every Centre.

What will I earn?

We pay more than the National Minimum Wage for Apprenticeships and offer a host of benefits such as free breakfast and lunch and healthcare.

Why choose us for your apprenticeship?

We believe you won’t find a better company to work for in childcare.

We have a comprehensive training package to help you become a truly inspiring and outstanding childcare practitioner, with lots of support available to help you succeed.

Once qualified, we offer a very competitive salary and exceptional opportunities to progress your childcare career within the company.

What’s more we have won various awards for our outstanding apprenticeship programme, including:

NMT training and development award 2010

CACHE apprentice employer of the year 2014
