Level 3 Qualified Early Years Practitioner – Maternity Cover
Little Pippins Pre-school is seeking to appoint a dynamic, enthusiastic and reliable person to join our friendly and passionate team. We are looking for someone who ideally has at least two years’ experience in an Early Years setting. SEND and DSL experience would be an advantage but not essential.
We are a busy village pre-school catering for children aged 2½ to 4 years old and open Monday to Friday, 9:05 am to 3:05pm, term-time only.
At Little Pippins we know that our most valuable resource is our staff team. Every day is carefully thought out to ensure we are pursuing the children’s interests. We always aim to offer the very best opportunities for the children which will inspire and stimulate, all in a safe environment where they can thrive. We sprinkle our sessions throughout the week with a little bit of magic, offering a variety of small group sessions including Tales Toolkit, Miss Cupcake Cooking, Super Subs, Spirals and our twice-weekly Forest School sessions. Each group is led by one of the team who work to enhance and broaden the children’s learning opportunities. In addition to this, staff members take responsibility for a group of key children who they support alongside their families in their pre-school journey. Little Pippins Pre-school knows that happy, motivated staff equals inspired, engaged children with a desire to learn. We are therefore committed to providing our staff team with opportunities to build on their own CPD, developing their own interests and skills.
If you have a little bit of sparkle to share with us, we would love to hear from you!
