Early Years Practitioner Role

Posted by on April 5, 2018 in News | 0 comments

We are currently seeking an Early Years Practitioner to join our busy and happy team in Horsforth. We are a registered charity and therefore the pre-school is run on a not-for-profit basis. This allows us to put the care, development and support of our children at the heart of everything we do. Established for over 30 years we have an excellent reputation locally and an experienced team of staff, the majority of whom are parents themselves.

We offer a vibrant, stimulating environment for children, focusing on each child’s individual development to help them grow and learn in the happiest and most natural way possible. We are looking for an Early Practitioner who has experience of working with young children in a child care setting; you will be qualified or currently working towards level 3 in Early Years age range. Candidates should have an interest in developing and maintaining a safe, secure and fun environment for our children and show a keen interest in supporting their development, care and learning needs. You will be able to plan appropriate learning activities to assess and observe how the children learn and develop. You should also be comfortable recording your observations as part of our online learning journals for parents. A good communicator is required to be able to converse effectively with children, staff, parents and visitors. We require a person who can use their own initiative and problem solve and deal with the daily challenges of working in a very busy pre-school environment.

We have a variety of hours available from the summer term and this will be discussed at interview stage. The position covers term time only however there will be opportunities for additional hours in the holidays and covering our breakfast and teatime sessions. Candidates should be willing to register or already registered on the DBS update service.
