Job Details


✨If you have previous experience working in childcare and left the industry for whatever reason, we are the reason to get back into it. We pay over the minimum wage and strongly believe in a work life balance, offering full and part time hours, with an option of reduced hours during school holidays.✨

✨Little Deers prides itself on being a dramatically different nursery, where caring relationships, the children’s needs, interests and making childhood memories are valued more than tick boxes, charts, and adult led activities. We believe that there is no need for excessive paperwork, we spend more time having fun and adventures with the children whilst creating long lasting memories in a safe learning environment.✨

✨Our emphasis is on life readiness rather than school readiness, giving children autonomy to be independent, make decisions and take managed risks. We believe in capturing children’s natural awe and wonder to spark their curiosity to promote a lifelong love of learning. Extensive or up to date experience is not necessary as refresher training can be given, what matters is the personality and the type of person you are.✨

Required Attributes:

  • Confident
  • Bubbly personality
  • Positive can do and will do attitude
  • Personable and approachable to children and parents
  • Ability to work as part of a team, using own initiative
  • Awareness of how to keep children safe while allowing them the freedom to learn through exploration and taking managed risks
  • Self-motivated
  • Common Sense (we know, it’s rare not common)
  • Reliable and punctual
  • Must not be overly sensitive, the friendly banter flows at times, and as for some of the thing’s children say!
  • We work hard and there’s never a dull moment, but the days are filled with laughter!
  • Must be ok working in all weathers, there’s no such thing as bad weather only unsuitable clothing – We offer a starting bonus to help with the cost of suitable outdoor clothing.
  • All positions subject to DBS and suitability checks.
  • We are an exceptionally busy nursery, with a good reputation and a lengthy waiting list with exciting growth plans. As part of that, further opportunities and career development may arise for the right candidates.
