Nursery Assistant

Job Introduction

Would you like to have up to 50 paid days off work a year, to further improve your ‘work-life’ balance?

Have you ever dreamed of becoming an architect? Join us and put your design skills to the test as you help the children to plan and build the grandest of sandcastles with a drawbridge, a moat, and flags flying high on the turrets.

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a mathematician? Join us and encourage the children to count as together you stack blocks one on top of the other, higher and higher, one, two, three… they all fall down.

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a chef-extraordinaire? Join us by helping the children to sow seeds in the garden, nurturing and harvesting your vegetable crops and then cooking them to perfection in a hot and creamy soup for everyone to enjoy. Oh, how yummy.

Have you ever dreamed of becoming an artist? Join us and encourage the children to explore colour and texture as you dig deep in the craft cupboard for glitter and sequins, sculpt models from dough and mix paints to make rainbows.

You can be anything you want to be we truly believe that, and there really is no end to what you will achieve at Childbase Partnership, as an Early Year’s Educator. Can you think of a more rewarding role or a better career choice? No? Then consider joining us because our nurseries would love to welcome creative, thoughtful, and caring people like you.
