Are you looking for a new adventure?

We are looking for 2 passionate and enthusiastic people to join our team in our busy term-time only preschool.

Experience/Qualifications preferred but not essential for the right candidates.

You will be able to make every child feel welcome and special and engage in play activities alongside them to support their learning and development.

If you are able to join in with a variety of different activities which could include hosting tea parties both inside and outside and never turning down an imaginary cup of tea, reading stories upside down, many times over,  with lots of interruptions, pretending to eat playdough creations and being a patient in the hospital role play and most importantly provide hugs when needed then this could be the job for you. 

You will be confident to sing nursery rhymes (even if they are out of tune) and read stories to a group of children.

The successful candidate would be required to have an enhanced DBS check.

The first position is part-time working 3 days a week from 8.30-4.15 but with the flexibility to cover other sessions if needed.

The second position is part-time with hours to be confirmed but with flexibility to cover other sessions if needed.
