Job Summary

Are you an experienced practitioner, who is looking to work in a nursery like no other. Our nursery follows a unique ' Curiosity Approach' as featured on East Midlands Today News 'The nursery without toys'.

If you’re level 3 qualified and think all your professional development is now complete, then we’re not the nursery for you.

If you don’t like splashing in puddles then please don’t apply.

If children’s learning consists of colouring pre-printed pictures then you’re definitely barking up the wrong tree!

Are you curious, inspirational and passionate about childcare? If so come and join our tribe!

In a fabulous nursery no two days should ever be the same. We are looking for a practitioner that can spot and identify opportunities to learn in the most unusual places.

In all seriousness, we’re really clear about the attributes we’re looking for. You need to be Positive, Caring and Fun. It’s as simple as that. However, this job isn’t for the faint hearted. Collectively, we work tirelessly to be the best possible practitioners we can. The quality of the experiences children have in our care is central to everything we do.

Inspirational training, hard work, and boundless enthusiasm is what we believe the key ingredients to a successful team.
