First Steps Childcare Group
£31,500 - £34,421 per annum
37 hours per week, 52 weeks per year
An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead a dedicated team of staff providing outstanding childcare in a safe, secure, fun and stimulating environment at the First Steps Childcare Group in our Bersted nursery. As a part of our outstanding group of nurseries spread across West Sussex, First Steps Bersted is a truly enjoyable, welcoming and supportive place to work. The nursery benefits from easy access to local shops, parks and the seaside, so it is not hard to see why the nursery can often boast a waiting list for childcare places!
As well as taking an active role with the children, you will lead the setting’s childcare team, modelling and guiding best practise, to ensure that the best possible learning and play opportunities are offered to the children. Share your love for learning and make a real difference in children’s development and learning journeys. You will also work alongside ‘behind the scenes’ staff, co-ordinating the smooth running of all nursery operations and communicating with the marketing lead and administration team, to help drive new childcare placements.
First Steps Childcare Group has nurseries in four locations; Chichester, Worthing, Bersted and Brinsbury. The nursery offers childcare options right from birth through to children ready to start school. The settings are open 51 weeks of the year, with core opening hours of 7.30am to 6.00pm, closed only for Bank Holidays and the period between Christmas and New Year.
We will consider requests for job share.
