This is a class-based, supportive position and will involve but is not restricted to the following:

  • Working as part of the school team to provide a safe, high quality early years environment for young children.
  • Working under the direction of the Head and to give support to the teaching team within the nursery school.

The School

Rolfe’s Nursery School is an Ofsted Outstanding nursery school based in Notting Hill, London. Part of the Alpha Plus Group, we provide a Gold Standard education, preparing children for entry to prestigious London preparatory schools.
