Operating from three centres in Camberwell, Walworth, and Lorrimore square 1st Place is a charity devoted to improving the opportunities of parents, children and families in its community. We are looking for a Senior Early Educator Maternity cover to start in January 2017.
Our nurseries offer 50 full time places, alongside 32 part time places for children accessing the 15 hour government scheme. Both are busy nurseries at the heart of the local community. The dedicated staff team have worked hard to ensure the best possible care is given to the children whilst working alongside parents and other professionals.
We follow the Reggio Emilia approach in our nurseries, an innovative movement for excellence in childhood education
Our aim is to give local parents and children the greatest possible chances in life. We are an ‘Outstanding’ Children and Parent’s centre, created to serve the needs of every local parent and child under five. We provide everything from ESOL courses, benefits advice, outstanding nursery education and free family activities to parenting support. As we are a charity, founded to support the local community, all profits are invested in the improvement of families’ lives.
If you feel you share our values and vision, we’d love to hear from you. At 1st Place we invest in training for all staff, and reward those who make a great contribution to the team.
