Our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Ford Road Nursery are looking for a fun and inspiring nursery deputy to join their team as maternity cover (6-12 months). LEYF follows a set of teachings which is reflective of our social enterprise approach. Each of the 7 elements is designed to strengthen children’s social and cultural capital through language, social opportunities, cultural experiences and friendships. The role will provide a perfect fit for an enthusiastic and hard-working person with a real passion for working in childcare. The ideal candidate will encourage and deliver our ethos in the nursery and reflect our 7 element pedagogy.
Age Range: 0 - 5 years
OFSTED Rating: Outstanding
I’ve been at Ford Road nursery since we opened our doors in 2009. A high number of families return to us with siblings so we have a real family feel. Each age group room has its own outdoor space with mud kitchens, growing patches, and den areas! My proudest moment was achieving an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rating in 2018. It made me reflect on how far the nursery has developed since I became the manager. The team strives every day to implement the LEYF values: fun, inspiring, nurturing, brave. I believe every child deserves to be in a safe and stimulating environment, with teachers who are responsive to their needs to help them thrive and develop.
We know it’s our people who make LEYF great. That’s why we value each staff member and offer:
● Pay and conditions above the national average in the nursery sector
● A nurturing, fun and value-led working environment
● An award-winning staff training and development programme
● The opportunity to make a real difference to children’s lives
