We are looking to appoint an inspirational Early Years Teacher (EYFS) or Primary Teacher (KS1) to join our dedicated team to cover a period of maternity leave commencing April 2019.

Established in 1991, Little Angels consists of two privately owned settings, each with approximately 70 places for children aged 5 months to 5 years. We have two Pre-School classrooms, one in each setting, with class sizes of approximately 13 children, aged 3 to 5 years. The nurseries are well resourced and both have outdoor spaces which offer a range of opportunities for exploration, investigation and play.

The teacher works with the support of a small teaching team which includes a part-time Teacher and a Teaching Assistant. They are responsible for working with practitioner teams and senior members of staff across both settings to ensure effective implementation of our play based, child-led curriculum throughout the nursery. In addition to planning and directing sessions in our dedicated teaching room, responsibilities include running weekly planning meetings, assisting with INSET training days, maintaining children’s folders, carrying out children’s observations on our bespoke in-house system and writing transfer records. The teacher will also be expected to assist practitioners, maintain best practice and encourage sustained shared thinking between adults and children.

Above all, we are looking for a creative and innovative teacher with a passion for learning.
