Could 2020 be the year you become part of Snapdragons Nurseries’ success?

We have an immediate vacancy for a passionate and conscientious person to join our growing and exciting Nursery group, working as a outstanding Advanced Baby Practitioner, at our beautiful nursery setting in Redland.

The nursery at Redland is growing and will expand to meet the needs of the community. It is registered for 200 children between the ages of 0 – 5 years and opens from 7.30am – 6.30pm daily, 51 weeks of the year.

Join Snapdragons and you’ll be part of something big. For over twenty years we’ve been leading the way in childcare in the South West, growing our family of nurseries and our reputation for progressive and innovative practice. We have nurtured and educated generations of children, giving them the confidence and curiosity to embrace their changing world.

The ideal candidate for this role will be familiar and highly competent with the use of advanced activities and strategies in the care of under twos. You will understand signs of attachment, how to provide an enabling environment and how to establish strong routines. Experience of working with this age group is essential. Equally important is your enjoyment in caring for our youngest children and your strong desire to have a positive impact on them.

You must have a minimum of a Level 3 qualification specific to Early Years as defined by the Department for Education:

and at least one years’ post qualifying experience working within an early year’s setting.

The post is full time (40 hours per week), Monday to Friday, all year round and you will be entitled to 6.6 weeks holiday, including Bank Holidays.

We offer an attractive salary of £19,760 per annum with flexible interview dates available.

But our passion for caring doesn’t stop with the children. We believe that happy staff make happy children, so we offer a package of support that you won’t find anywhere else.

We only recruit the very best team members in exchange for competitive salaries along with excellent benefits and rewards, including:

  • 6 weeks paid holiday a year (one more than is legally required)
  • Nursery closures between Christmas and New Year (meaning never working over the Christmas break)
  • Additional paid leave on your birthday
  • ‘Recommend a friend’ bonus
  • Glitzy Christmas party with fabulous food, entertainment and awards!
  • Paid paediatric first aid training
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Family friendly policies including generous childcare discounts so your own children can attend
  • Well-being weeks
