Level 3 Qualified Preschool Assistant

The core hours of work will be between 8:45am and 3:15pm, with the expectance to work some breakfast clubs and after school clubs. It will be 4 days a week between Monday to Friday during term time with the opportunity to work during the school holidays if required. The hourly rate is £9.50.

The role will be working across both our sites at Heddington and Cherhill, so flexibility is essential and a driving licence due to the rural locations.

The ideal person would be level 3 trained, with a first aid qualification, passionate about childcare, flexible, caring, and of course have a good sense of fun. A love of the outdoors is essential as both sites are forest school sites, so enjoying getting wet and muddy in winter is a must! The role will include working as part of a self-motivating team, supporting key children and working with the EYFS.

We would like the applicant to be confident in observing, recording and in the planning of high quality activities, so knowledge of the EYFS is essential.

So, if you possess a confident, professional friendly manner, are self-motivated and able to work in a team, we would love to hear from you.

For more information, please contact Kirsty Stone via admin@cherhillpreschool.org or 01249812871 for an application form.

Closing date for applications is 9th July 2021.
