About the role:

As we expand, we are looking for two Deputy Managers to join the founding team at Ark Start Nurseries. In this role, you will provide the highest standards of physical, emotional, social, and intellectual care for all children in your care. You'll ensure all children are safeguarded and their welfare and safety are promoted, and you'll work to provide an enabling environment in which all children can play, learn, and develop.

We are particularly looking for individuals who have a genuine passion for young children and who are eager to progress into leadership roles. With the skill, creativity, commitment, energy, and enthusiasm required for leading room practice, you'll play a crucial part in shaping the future of our nursery. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to take learning beyond the classroom, engaging in outdoor and forest learning, cooking, and gardening activities. This won't just be another day in the classroom!

Key Responsibilities:

  • Encouraging young children to enjoy learning about their environment through fun games and activities
  • Encouraging the development of social awareness through interactions with other children
  • Ensuring that classrooms and outside play areas are child-friendly and safe
  • Promoting high standards of the nursery at all times to parents, staff, and visitors
  • Keep records of all children’s development and learning journals and share this with parents and carers and ensure all record keeping is up to date and accurate

Commitment to safeguarding

Ark is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. In order to meet this responsibility, we follow a rigorous selection process to discourage and screen out unsuitable applicants.

All employees must undertake an enhanced DBS check. You are required, before appointment, to disclose any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975. Non-disclosure may lead to termination of employment. However, disclosure of a criminal background will not necessarily debar you from employment - this will depend upon the nature of the offence(s) and when they occurred.
