What skills and experience we're looking for

Parbold Douglas Nursery Ltd (a subsidiary of Parbold Douglas CE Academy) is excited to be seeking a visionary, inspiring leader to oversee its large and popular Early Years and Wraparound Care setting. This vacancy has arisen following the resignation of our successful and long-standing Setting Manager, who has secured a new strategic position at a local council.

Parbold Douglas Nursery and Duggies Out-of-School Care are based in the beautiful village of Parbold, within the grounds of Parbold Douglas CE Academy.

The Nursery offers all-year-round care (open 51 weeks of the year) for children aged 1 to 5years between the hours of 7:30am and 6:00pm daily. The Nursery operates across three rooms (Buttercup Room, Caterpillar Room, and Butterfly Room) and has capacity for 55 children on-site at any one time.

Duggies Out-of-School Care is open during term-time and offers wraparound care provision to the pupils of Parbold Douglas CE Academy (aged 4 to 11 years old) – the morning session runs from 7:30am until 8:50am, and the afternoon sessions runs from 3:20pm until 6pm.

What the school offers its staff

At Parbold Douglas, we are intentional about how we work, not just what we do. This means that how we operate as professionals really matters to us.

We offer a supportive, forward-thinking environment that is focussed on enabling all employees to flourish.

The Setting Manager (Nursery and Duggies) will be directly supported in their work by the Headteacher, the School Business Manager, the Admin Officer, and the Nursery Committee.
