The highlights of working for a thriving social enterprise on the banks of the River Thames.
Being part of a wider community not only gives practitioners at Coin Street Nursery in London a huge sense of worth – but it also makes the role exciting.
Coin Street Nursery, which sits on the riverside of London’s South Bank, home to iconic attractions such as the London Eye and the Tate Modern, is part the Ofsted Outstanding Coin Street family and children’s centre. The 84-place purpose-built nursery is based on the first floor of the thriving Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre which has state-of-the-art facilities, and houses the social enterprise’s head office, as well as conference rooms for hire; family support and parenting sessions; stay and play and a creche.
With 80 members of staff in the same building, many working with the people who live and work in the neighbourhood, there’s a huge sense of community spirit, explains Sam Major-Linithan, a level 3 practitioner who has worked for Coin Street Nursery for seven years.
