About Great Wood Farm:

Great Wood has been awarded Outstanding by Ofsted in both 2010 and 2014. We care for and educate children aged from 6 weeks to 12, following the core Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, incorporating learning in an outdoor environment where free play, fresh air, exposure to the natural world and physical activity are an integral part of learning. Our outdoors ethos is a main feature within the nursery, where staff are encouraged to get out and about with the children, whether it be for a morning in the woods or in the garden visiting the animals. We have pushchairs and a walking wagon enabling even our youngest of children to have access out and about on the farm and in the woods.

We are currently building a new purpose built nursery on an adjacent field and are planning on moving across to it from September, exciting times ahead!

What are we looking for:

Our ideal candidate will have great passion for nature play and love of working with babies. Our ideal candidate has a high level of energy and is active as well as approachable and caring. At Great Wood Farm we are looking for a leader as well as a team player with excellent communication skills enabling great relationships with children and partnerships with parents.

Safeguarding is extremely important to us, we will pay for you to have an enhanced DBS check and we'll fully supervise all employees until a clear DBS check is received.

You must be a minimum of Level 3 qualified, with experience and have a solid working knowledge of the EYFS and working with babies.
