Job Details

Nursery Nurse

“And at the end of the day your feet should be dirty, your hair should be messy and your eyes sparkling “ Shanti.

…..Does this sound like a fun day to you? If it does you could be just the person we’re looking for.

Do you possess the magic and sparkle to build relationships with very little people? Can you use this magic and sparkle to distract them when they are teething, hungry or missing home?

Would you enjoy exploring the local environment with our babies, which may include getting wet and muddy?

Can you pretend to be a farmyard animal while eating a slice of shaving foam cake and drinking a cup of goo?

Would you be happy to be seen in public wearing lunch, cornflour, paint, mud, dribble or the unknown!

Twelve colourful handprints and 24 footprints … Can you imagine this being a space ship displayed on the wall?

Are you a fan of Tigger? You will spend a large part of your day bouncing around, jumping up and down from the floor or crawling around on all fours from one end of the room to the other with our little people

Can you talk passionately about the world our babies can see? They may not always be able to answer you but they love to listen.

Do you have the patience to read the same book over and over again without your enthusiasm wavering?

Do you have a heightened sense of smell that can seek out a smelly nappy at 20 paces and a cast iron stomach that can manage the whiff when changing it?

How does a day packed with fun and adventures while nurturing and caring for our little people sound?
