Glendon Farm Montessori and Forest School have an opportunity
e have a rare and exciting opportunity for someone to join our wonderful team and learn to be an Early Years Practitioner the Glendon way.
With the gentle guidance of our teachers, our children (aged 1-5) have amazing adventures every day. They learn to be incredibly independent and are treated with the utmost respect. We truly put children at the centre of everything we do. A genuine love of child-led learning and lots of all-weather outdoor play is an absolute must!
We need someone who adores children in the early years and being outdoors…from marvelling at the jet streams of the planes overhead, to giving perfect nose-blowing lessons. We are very much a setting where everyone mucks in with everything. You will be hard-working, organised and willing to learn all about the Montessori and Forest School ethos.
You will care for the children and the environment. As well as helping to maintain the environment through cleaning, tidying and setting-up learning opportunities, you will also have a small group of key children who you will be responsible for. You will plan activities for them, liaise with parents, carry out & write up observations, and track their progress.
We are dedicated to equal opportunities and celebrate diversity.
All offers will be subject to an enhanced DBS check and suitable references, in line with our safeguarding policy.
8-5 3 days per week, 8-2 one day per week. Additional hours for staff meetings, training days and special events. Predominantly term time, with some holiday club cover needed.
Basic IT skills.
Able to relate to children.
Organised and able to plan time effectively.
Warm, enthusiastic and kind.
Enjoy working with people.
Able to work under pressure, as part of a team.
Lover of the outdoors and nature.
