This Outstanding children’s nursery in Lewes needs a Level 3 Nursery Practitioner to join the team.

We’re based in a beautiful flint school house in Lewes with a free-flow outdoor classroom, a big playground and a nature field across the road.

The children grow vegetables in the garden, go to Forest School every week, take yoga and French classes, act in our Nativity Play and compete at sports day in the summer.

Our Mini Monties have their own base at one end of the classroom while the 2s and overs mix together in the rest of the classroom. You’ll work in an area of the nursery that suits your skills and favourite age range.

The skills and personal attributes we’re looking for include:

  • An NVQ Level 3 in childcare.
  • The confidence to talk to parents with authority.
  • The work ethic needed to care for young children.

The salary for this position is between £18,000 and £20,000. You’ll work a 40-hour week, receive 30 days holiday per year (which includes 2 wellbeing days) and you’ll be able to join the company pension scheme.

We have a car park on site, we are 10 minutes’ walk from the train station and a bus to Brighton stops one-minutes’ walk away.

To apply, visit our website ( and send us a covering note and CV.
