  • 38 weeks a year (with a chance to earn some more money in the holidays)

Bo-Peep is a small Nurturing Teaching Nursery looking for someone special to join our team so if the qualities below sound like you, please get in touch.

  • You must hold a level 3 (or above) qualification in childcare and relevant experience working in a nursery. (Please do not apply without these)
  • You must have at least 3 years experience working in a Teaching Nursery
  • You must have a warm smiling face that makes every child feel special.
  • You must be able to laugh at jokes you don’t understand, or you don’t find funny!
  • You will leave work every day with muddy, wet clothes and know that it means it’s been a good day!
  • You must enjoy long holidays (we are term time-only and use the holidays wisely to re-energise ourselves)
  • You will preferably have a little bit of quirkiness. If a child requests that you be the Big Bad Wolf, you will be the best Big Bad Wolf you can be! 
  • The ability to sing in tune is not necessary, however the ability to sing out of tune in front of a crowd is essential. As is dancing to all types of music!
  • You must be able to distribute warm hugs as required.
  • You know who Peppa Pig, Elsa, Anna, Bob, Captain America, and Sponge Bob are and know every single word to ‘Let it Go’.
  • Possessing the skills required to rapidly count the heads of numerous moving small people is of the utmost importance.
  • Given just some sticks and leaves, you could create something amazing that even Blue Peter presenters would be proud of.
  • You must have a high level of comfort around talking about bodily functions. You must have a strong sense of smell to enable you to respond to said bodily functions.
  • Pretending to eat playdough creations realistically is required, and that of drinking numerous cups of pretend tea.
  • You must be able to get the attention of 20 busy and energetic children without raising your voice.
  • You must have the ability to read a ten page fairytale, upside down, with at least 4 interruptions per page.
  • You must be prepared to have lots of fun in the workplace. Laughter is something you can expect to engage in for a large part of your working day.
  • Finally, you must be prepared to feel loved, special and important to many young children and their families. There is simply no other job quite like this one.
