job description

Are you a nursery nurse looking to move to a permanent role with a passion for providing high quality child care? Are you CACHE level 3 qualified or higher? Then we have a great new exciting role for you.

One of our nurseries is looking to take on a new, full time member of staff after undergoing a significant expansion to their facilities. The expansion means that the nursery has been able to create an all inclusive environment for their children to learn and develop positively through the help of the nursery assistants currently working there.

Qualified first aiders are always onsite to step in if needed and rigorous health and safety practices are upheld consistently from the staff. By the nursery creating their health and safety hero 'Candy Floss' this encourages the children to recognise and manage potential risks while also being taught the essential safety message. Candy Floss can also be taken home with children to work with parents in helping to identify any risks that they might encounter at home, thus helping to solidify the importance of this character to the children and helping positively with their development.
