Deadline: Friday 15th November

Salary: £18,000 to £20,000


I’m looking for a Level 3 Nursery Practitioner to join my team.

I manage a lovely setting just north of the town centre, off London Road. We’re a bit smaller than most all-year-round settings which helps keep the nursery calm and very focussed on the children.

The babies have their own room while the 2s and overs mix together in our free flow classrooms. We’re Montessori-inspired, so we like to give the children structure and a routine, then encourage them to be independent within that. 

It’s a formula which really works. We opened a couple of years ago and parents have bought into what we do from the start. There’s a waiting list for the morning sessions.

The pay for this role is between £18,000 and £20,000 for a 40-hour week. You’ll get 28 days holiday a year, plus 2 wellbeing days annual leave, and there’s a pension scheme you can join.

Just as importantly, I’ll help you in the classroom and the rest of the team are really friendly and supportive.

The person I’m looking for will have:

·         An NVQ in childcare Level 3.

·         Confidence – as a key person you’ll be talking to parents every day.

·         A good work ethic.

To apply, fill in the form below, or email me a covering note and your CV. (If you want, come along to the nursery to see how we run.)

Good luck, and I hope to see you soon.
