The Nest is registered for 30 children between the ages of 2 – 5 years and opens from 7.30am – 6.00pm daily, 47 weeks of the year. A second Nursery for 30 children is due to open in January 2020 on the site of Wellington Eagles Primary Academy in Ludgershall, this role will involve working across both sites which are situated less than a mile for each other.

Due to growth we require a Key Worker to join our team. As a Key Worker, you will be responsible for a small group of key children within the nursery. You will work under the direction of the Nursery Manager to provide safe high quality education and care for young children.

The weekly working pattern is to be agreed as there is a degree of flexibility around start and finish times. The 30 hours will be split over Monday to Friday and will require working across the two sites.
