As a result of expanding our Nursery provision, we are looking for a permanent Teaching Assistant who is flexible and happy to work in different settings, including supporting children at lunchtimes where necessary.

  • possesses good literacy and numeracy skills;
  • relevant training, ideally in Early Years education;
