Job Opportunities

We have two opportunities for you to work at Little Acorns:

Two exciting part time Pre-school Practitioner opportunities have arisen at Little Acorns Pre-school. We are looking for exceptional team-players to join us as we nurture the ‘Little Acorns’ of our community through their first steps into education.

We are recruiting two Pre-school Practitioners on term time only permanent contracts – one 17 hours per week and one 14 hours per week. Our opening hours are 8.00am to 3.30pm (which incorporates a breakfast club).

We are a registered charity Pre-school managed by a committee of parents, in the village of Shireoaks, and are proud of our ‘Good’ ratings from Ofsted in 2019 and 2016.  We have our own purpose built building and all weather outdoor space, located in the grounds of St. Luke’s CofE Primary School.

The successful candidate must be qualified to at least Level 3 in Early Years Childcare (NNEB, BTEC, NVQ) and have experience of responsibility of care for children in a day nursery or similar setting. Experience working as a key person for children aged from 2 to 5 years is desirable, as is a current paediatric first aid certificate.

These positions pay above the National Living Wage rate.

Closing date for applications is 12 noon on Friday 18th October 2019.

Interviews will be held during the week commencing Monday 11th November 2019.

The vacancies are immediate and the successful applicants will commence employment as soon as they are able to.
