Are you enthusiastic, cheerful, with more energy than average? Could you create the magic moments that make a childhood?
A local Children's Nursery in West Blatchington, Hove is looking for apprentice Childcare Assistants to join their growing team whilst studying towards a nationally recognised qualification.
We are an independent childcare business in the West Blatchington area of Hove, owned by Karen Fothergill (formerly of Safe and Sound and Play and Learn Daycare) and Lou Adams (formerly of Fizzy Fish Childcare and Little Gulls and Buoys). We consist of two settings and offer high quality flexible childcare for working parents.
Our younger setting specialises in childcare for children aged 0-3 years and our Pre-School cares for the 3 & 4 year olds.
Karen, Lou and all our staff regularly attend courses and we participate in the Quality Improvement in Learning and Teaching (QuILT), a quality assurance scheme. This ensures that we continually evaluate and improve our practice in all areas of our service.
Karen and Lou believe that they should continue to develop their skills and knowledge in childcare as well as ensure that staff are attending not only the mandatory courses but courses in which they have a real passion. We are not just about childcare but ensuring that our staff love their career choice as much as we do. We believe in our staff and want to support them with career progression. The greater their knowledge the better they will be able to care for and help your child develop and be pre-school ready from our first setting and be school ready from our second setting.
If you want to work as part of a friendly, supportive and caring team, that's dedicated to helping children to learn and grow to be the best they can be, then this is the Apprenticeship for you. Some of your daily activities could include:
• planning and assisting in activities such as arts and crafts, music and cooking
• helping children to learn numeracy and literacy skills
• feeding and changing babies
Upon successful completion of this apprenticeship you'll gain a nationally recognised childcare qualification, along with functional skills in Maths, English & ICT.
Now is a great time to start your career in childcare as improving child care provision is high on the government's list of priorities. Their aim to provide free places for all three to four year olds has created thousands of new jobs, and this Apprenticeship will equip you with the relevant skills and requirements to make the most of this growth.
All of your training will be provided by learndirect, the UK's largest provider of Apprenticeships. We've helped lots of people like you develop their skills and gain experience in their chosen field. Every year we find work for and train over 23,000 apprentices.
