Nursery Manager for expanding nursery in SE London
Leo's Den Nursery is an OFSTED "Good" nursery close to Borough, SE London.
The last year has been a period of change and development for the nursery, and we have opened 2 new floors as well as doing a full building refurbishment. Our capacity has increased from 42 to 66, and so we are now looking for a Nursery Manager to replace our current manager who is retiring later in the year.
As the nursery has a Nursery Director, we have lots of scope in the type of candidate that we can recruit. We would be very happy to have a fully experienced manager who wants to work for a forward looking independent nursery, or we could take a current deputy manager who is ready for the step up to manager level.
Our mantra is to offer best practice within the nursery, and to this end we have the Famly software system providing communication between the staff and parents, Nurserycam CCTV plus a sensory room and other innovative practices. The Nursery Manager should be forward thinking and be able to move the nursery forward in the form of best practice, innovation and outcomes.
Candidates will have a minimum of a Level 3 qualification in Early Years, plus a minimum of 3 years operational experience as a Room Leader or Deputy Manager. You will also have received extensive training in the areas of safeguarding, first aid, planning and observations, as well as having a thorough understanding of EYFS.
The nursery is open throughout the year from 7.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday, and your weekly working hours will be planned in conjunction with the 2 existing deputy managers.
If you think you can be this dynamic manager of an intelligent, hard working, diverse team then please forward your CV with a cover letter. Immediate start is possible but we would be equally happy waiting for the right candidate if extended working notice is needed.
