(Y)Our Opportunity

We are looking for an enthusiastic, dynamic and proactive Lead Nursery Nurse to join our supportive and collaborative team. You will encourage our children to be unique, foster their curiosity and support them on a journey of discovery enabling them to be inquisitive and confident learners.

You’ll immerse yourself with our stimulating EYFS curriculum and engage in learning through creative play. The ability to sing in tune is not necessary; however, the ability to sing out of tune in front of children is essential.

You will be extremely well supported, working alongside a committed team of practitioners and teachers. It’s not necessarily the length of your experience that we’re most interested in, it’s your passion and commitment to our mission, ensuring every child, whatever their background, receives a high quality education.
