Nursery Nurse in Cheltenham - Perm placement - Immediate start - £17K - £20K

Your new company
You will be working in a setting that cares for 65 children aged 0-5 year's olds. The nursery is based on one level which enables children to have free flow into the garden as it is very open planned. The setting is made up on 5 large rooms with the baby room having a separate sleep room equipped with cots and comforts from home to ensure they feel settled in their surroundings. The garden has lots of equipment for children to explore, learn and play and develop their social skills with peers. The nursery has good public transport routes so is easily accessible but also has free parking close to the setting for those who would prefer to drive.

Your new role
You will be a Practitioner in the baby room where you will be a key person to 3 babies which will expect you to look after the babies and ensure that their home routine is implemented throughout the day to increase continuity from home to nursery. You will also be expected to create activities around the EYFS framework and make sure that the babies are safe at all times. In this room it is important for the nursery and children for staff to discuss and liaise with parent's regarding their child's needs as they grow and develop, which ensure parents are involved every step of the way. Another key part of this role is being confidant with feeding and nappy changing so that the babies are comfortable at all times.

What you'll need to succeed
You will need to hold a level 3 qualification within childcare, with experience in a baby room in the past two years which is referenceable. You will need to work well within a team of 6-7 staff members in the baby room, show your initiative, interact well with the babies and care for their individual need. If you are successful after phone interview you will be invited into the nursery for a 4 hour working interview.

What you'll get in return
You will be offered an hourly rate above minimum wage and also be able to get brilliant experience in this setting. Additionally this role potentially can turn permanent due to the increasing numbers in the room they made need to continue this additional support.
