Do you relish planning and delivering a child-centred, creative early years curriculum which meets the needs of individual children? Do you pride yourself on the high-quality learning experiences you offer the children in your care and the strong relationships you build with children, their families and partner agencies? If so, we would love to hear from you.

As part of a 2-12year service you would plan, assist and support the provision of high-quality care and a comprehensive range of appropriate stimulating and creative activities for children 3-12 years from other services.

As part of the Glenearn Community Campus, we offer excellent facilities in a modern and attractive, open-plan nursery. As a key member of our early years team, we also offer the opportunity to inspire the next generation.
