About the employer
We operate a high ratio of staffing to maintain our commitment to provide the highest quality of childcare. Both nurseries have a nursery manager, supported by a deputy manager. A senior nursery practitioner is responsible for each room and is assisted by a team of qualified nursery nurses and assistants. In the pre-school unit of each nursery, a qualified teacher works closely with small groups of children. The teacher also works closely with nursery staff in the pre-school unit in planning and organising activities. Our operational manager supports both nurseries, ensuring that EduCare is providing the best education and care for each child. Staff development is paramount and all nursery assistants are training towards a recognised qualification in childcare. We offer the best training opportunities to our staff so they can provide excellent support in the nursery. We pride ourselves on our staff training and have a high number of first aiders who work within the nursery.

Additional location information
At EduCare, each child is seen as an individual, and their needs are unique to them. We dedicate a key person to work in each room of the nursery. This person will build a special warm and caring relationship with both the child and each parent or carer to help ensure that they settle in well at the nursery. The key person will often be the one to provide care to reassure the child. The key person will be there to provide information regarding your child’s development and if you have any concerns or would like to inform us of your child’s development, the key worker will ensure that all nursery staff connected with your child has been informed.
Your full role and responsibilities will be set out by your employer. Educare will provide you with all of the on-the-job training you need to up-skill in your role, and your 20% off-the-job learning will be incorporated as part of your working day.
If successful, you will complete a Children & Young People’s Workforce apprenticeship programme delivered through Educare’s dedicated training provider, Interserve Learning & Employment.
