Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen within our Nursery team for Nursery Practitioners to join us on a Zero-Hour Contract within our Bank Staff Team. We are looking for someone with a passion to ensure children have the best start in life. Something the team at YMCA Day Nursery believe should be the case for every child placed in their care.

Ideally you would have an existing Childcare qualification, but if you have experience and you can do the following this could be the role for you:

  • Could you read stories upside down, with at least 10 interruptions per minute?
  • You would preferably have a quirkiness-if a child requests you to be a bus driver, police officer or even an astronaut, could you take them on an imaginary journey through space?
  • You can’t be afraid to dance in the rain, explore in the mud kitchen or build a snowman in the depths of winter.
  • Having the skills to count quick moving heads of small people is a must have skill.
  • Nose wiping skills are of course desired!
  • Finally, you must be prepared to feel appreciated, loved and have essential bonds with young children and their families.

As a nursery manager I can assure you that there is not a better feeling in any workplace than meeting a small 6 month old baby who you will support and watch them grow and develop into a member of the preschool room being ready to begin their school journey…

 

Benefits

In addition to joining a great team, our colleagues also benefit from: access to a free and confidential Employee Assistance Programme, 24/7 GP Helpline, discount at our Café and Nursery, a free gym membership for you and a loved one and training opportunities on various topics such as Safeguarding, Mental health and Health and Safety, Birthday off and enhanced holiday.
