Windsor Nursery School is a dynamic learning environment serving children from the richly diverse local community, including children with English as an additional language, eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium and with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

The successful candidate will have energy and enthusiasm to work with children aged 2-5 years, will be observant and will be motivated to engage in reflective practice and a researching approach. He/she will have a passion for play, learning outdoors and indoors, working as a member of a team and will be an effective communicator with an interest and understanding in child development linked to some relevant work and/or life experiences.
An understanding of and commitment to the principals of Early Childhood Education, Equality of Opportunity and Safeguarding are essential, in addition to an interest in and understanding of the impact of disadvantage on young children.
The successful candidate will hold a flexibility in their thinking, a nurturing approach with both children and families, and relish continually developing a responsive curriculum for children to experience and learn through adventure, risk and challenge. Learning in the outdoors is a key feature at Windsor!
