We are all working towards becoming a Curiosity Approach setting – an innovative, exciting pedagogy with so many benefits for the children. Additional training on this will be provided for all staff so it is a great time to join our team.

All essential training and costs such as DBS checks will be paid for by the company.

Wellness is important to us, and we offer discounts on services like massages or yoga classes for staff – we nurture our staff as well as the children. Snacks, fruit, tea and coffee are provided for staff and meetings are catered too.  There are additional benefits too for staff.
