Location: Jimbo’s Community Nursery, 20 Vinery Terrace, LS9 9LU.

Leeds Mencap opened a purpose built nursery, Jimbo’s Community Nursery, in 2016.  The nursery, after school club and holiday club offers childcare to children aged 6 months – 11 years. Jimbo’s Community Nursery includes a specialist playroom for children with additional needs.  We are looking for two skilled nursery practioners to support the Childcare Manager in delivering high standards of care and education within the mainstream nursery.

The nursery is busy and vibrant and you’ll need to be positive, flexible, creative and conscientious.  You’ll have a track record of providing high quality care and education to children aged 6 months - 4 years.  Team working is an essential requirement of the role and we’ll expect you to be able to build positive relationships with colleagues and parents to support the development of the children attending the nursery.  You’ll be skilled at planning and carrying out a range of fun and exciting activities in line with the Early Years Foundation curriculum and be able to adapt these to a diverse range of needs.  It is essential that you have an empathetic, supportive and non-judgemental attitude towards others.

You will hold at least a Level 3 Childcare Qualification.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work for an ambitious local charity who are passionate about all children realising their aspirations and achieving their potential.

We are committed to safeguarding children and all posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
