Childbase Partnership, a Times Top 100 company to work for, is looking to recruit an Apprentice at their West Downs Day Nursery in Winchester.

Work should be fun and we are looking for individuals who share that philosophy whilst providing children under 5 with a 'Sound Foundation' for life.

Your duties as an Apprentice Nursery Nurse will include:
  • Building positive relationships with the children, families, colleagues and internal/external professionals
  • Ensuring that each child's wellbeing is met and that they thrive in a safe environment
  • Safeguarding all children in our care
  • Observing, monitoring and engaging in children's play activities linked to the EYFS. Activities will support children's language and literacy, art and design, numeracy and physical development
  • Keeping records on individual children, including daily observations and information about activities, meals served, and medications administered
  • Learning how to provide high quality childcare to our children
  • Assisting in serving food to children, ensuring special dietary requirements are met

In addition to this we offer a wide range of employee benefits:
  • Cash rewards for going 'Beyond Expectation'
  • Potential for an annual tax-free Partnership Dividend
  • 22 days annual leave plus bank holidays, with the option to buy and sell leave

The pay rate is £5.55 per hour and you will work 37.5 hours a week.

During your work-based apprenticeship you will be allocated time to complete any relevant computer-based learning. If you don't already hold GCSEs graded A-C in English and Maths, you will be required to study for functional skills alongside your early years qualification.

A level 2 apprenticeship will last for approximately 13-17 months and a level 3 will last for 19-23 months. Upon completion, you will have the opportunity to apply for qualified roles in our local nurseries.

If you are enthusiastic and want a career in childcare then we would love to hear from you.

Successful applicants will need to provide 'right to work in the UK' documentation, undertake a DBS and provide at least two satisfactory references prior to commencing employment.
