Appleton Thorn Pre-school

Appleton Thorn Pre-School are looking to appoint an experienced and dedicated Manager to run our small setting in the heart of Appleton Thorn village, providing safe, high quality education and care. This is an excellent opportunity to join a friendly, well-established, community based pre-school, which opens from 9am until 3pm from Monday to Friday during term time.

You will need to fulfil legal and statutory requirements, manage staff on a day-to-day basis and to write, contribute to and implement pre-school policies. As Manager you must have a secure knowledge of the welfare and learning and development requirements of the EYFS and have regard to the SEND code of practice. You would be responsible for overseeing the settings planning, for supervising staff to ensure that they were adequately supporting their key groups and ensure that any safeguarding or educational concerns were addressed and referred appropriately.

As a charity run pre-school the Manager reports in to a Committee of volunteers, although these individuals are from a broad background and can provide many areas of expertise and guidance, you should be confident in all aspects of running this type of organisation.

The candidate will need to have a minimum level 3 early years childcare qualification, have experience of managing a team of staff, have undergone safeguarding training, a good understanding of child development and children’s needs and, ideally, working knowledge of SEND.

We want someone who is fun, who is able to play like a 3 year old and will help to inspire these little minds to grow and challenge themselves every day.

Appleton Thorn Pre-School is committed to equality and diversity and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check, eligibility to work in the UK and references will be required.
