About this role……

What are we really looking for?
We are looking for someone really special!

If you are a practitioner who truly values children and childhood; who believes in helping children see the magic and wonder in the world around them no matter what challenges they face; who believes in really immersing themselves in play with children (not just supervising them); who can make every day an adventure; who is an advocate for children, all that they do, and all that they need; and who understands that nurture, high level emotional well-being and true creativity are the foundations for all other learning this might just be the job for you.

· Are you excited and imaginative about creating possibilities for their learning?

· Do you possess an astonishing array of voices that can be used for dramatic effect in all kinds of stories. To have fun and energy in your story telling and practice?

· Are you devoted to making connections with families because you know that is the best way to understand children?

· Are you a confident multitasker, for example whilst being bandaged up (because you are the patient today) can you still ensure that all nappies are fresh and you have a plan for snack time?

· Do you get a real buzz from delivering fantastic customer service that makes families feel awesome about the provision you offer?

· Can you be a superhero (or a polar bear, or an astronaut) at a moment’s notice because that is what your audience demands?

· Are you more concerned about what children take home in their hearts and minds, than in their hands when they leave nursery?

· Do you love arriving at the end of a day and knowing that you made a difference?

· Are you driven to enhance children’s learning through teaching the EYFS and supporting children to thrive educationally, encourage resilience and to ensure smooth transitions from our pre-school to School.

If this sounds like you, what are you waiting for, we’d love to meet you.

This week has been all about being independent and taking ownership of their own work. Life cycles was the theme - look at what they have achieved in such a short amount of time.! From babies through to toddlers and finally into pre-school, learning taking place on a high level, all of the children' next steps are appropriate to their own individual development.
As we near to the end of this academic year, why not enquire about a future space for your child!
Need more information? Please do give us a call.
