Deputy Nursery Manager SE London (Accommodation can be provided)
Leo's Den is an expanding nursery school in south east London close to Borough and Bermondsey, and within 10 minutes walk of London Bridge train station. We also have a large staff house close to East Croydon station.
We have recently opened a new floor increasing the capacity from 42 to 66, and we look after children from 4 months to 5 years old. We are therefore looking for an additional Deputy Nursery Manager to join our team. As a nursery we are technically advanced and use the Famly tablet system for recording planning, observations and outcomes for the children, as well as giving parents easy access to their child's progress, we also have our own play garden and roof terrace.
We are looking for a candidate who has a minimum Level 3 qualification within early years, plus a minimum of 2 years relevant experience within a childcare setting. You will have an excellent understanding of the EYFS and should have had significant experience of doing planning and observations, as well as a good understanding of "in the moment" activities.
As the nursery is open from 7.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday, ideally we are looking for a full time candidate with full flexibility to work on a shift pattern within those hours, however we would happily consider part time, term time only candidates who have some flexibility with their working hours.
In return we offer a friendly environment within which to work, as well as good training and solid promotion prospects for those wishing to develop a management career in childcare.
Pay will be from £22,000-25,000 per annum dependant on your qualifications and experience. We can provide accommodation in your own double room in our staff house. In your application please send your CV and a cover note confirming your required rate of pay and notice period (if any), and if you require accommodation.
