We currently have opportunities for highly motivated individuals to join our team within the University of Southampton's Early Years Centre, in a role which requires commitment and flexibility.

You will be responsible for the delivery of high-quality care and education, whilst supporting all needs and stages of early development. Your focus will be to create a calm and tranquil space where both children and staff feel safe, secure and content. We want all our families to feel welcomed and at peace, knowing that their little ones are being cared for in the most nurturing and inspiring way.

We are currently on our journey to gain ‘The Curiosity Approach' accreditation, where we aim to provide endless opportunities for children to learn, laugh and explore in a safe and supported environment.

As an Early Years Practitioner, together we will put the child at the centre of everything we do; always asking ourselves “why?” and reflecting on how what we are doing is benefiting the child. We reflect on our areas and resources and think about the open-ended opportunities they provide, focusing on the child's interests. We look to extend on children's play to support them through their learning and development, by modelling play, actions and communication.

We believe children thrive and learn best when they are happy, relaxed and having fun, encouraging a natural love of learning and curiosity.

We want our practitioners to take pride in the care they provide and help create a compassionate and kind setting for all. We can achieve this by being united and working together to create a setting that allows children, families and staff to express their own curiosity and nurturing personalities.

Applicants must have or be working towards a NVQ Level 3 in Early Years and Education/CACHE Diploma/NNEB or equivalent.

A satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service clearance at Enhanced level is also required.

For an informal discussion please contact the Centre Manager, Telephone (023) 8059 3465 or email your CV: [email protected]
