Job Details

Do you recognize amazing potential in children?

WRAP is centrally located, just a pebble’s throw from Brighton station. Housed in a pair of Victorian townhouses, it combines three floors of workspace and two floors of nursery provision.

Our childcare setting is beautifully designed - bright, spacious and underpinned with strong eco-credentials.

Our space is unique in offering tangible support to parents; whether it be breastfeeding mothers returning to work or those who want to achieve a healthier work life balance”
