You will be provided with the chance to “earn and learn” in a well-established nursery in Leeds with an experienced staff team. You will be given the opportunity to gain and develop new skills and experiences, whilst working towards a Level 3 apprenticeship standard for the Early Years Educator.
Duties will include:
Our nursery at Horsforth is based in a beautiful setting on the grounds of West End Lane Primary School. Established in 2004, in new purpose-built accommodation, the Nursery provides the highest quality childcare to children aged from 3 months to 5 years.
At Inspirations Nurseries we follow the Reggio Emilia approach. We carefully foster a culture of inquiry through art.
We believe the language of art becomes the language of learning; a tool to inspire our children. Our Atelierista, (a teacher with an arts background) works closely with the children in the atelier (art space) focusing on producing art through different mediums. In this way, the expressive and poetic languages become part of the process by which knowledge is built.
We love Forest School and being outdoors in general! Forest School is an integral part of Inspirations philosophy, it aligns well with the Reggio Emilia approach to learning and the children absolutely love it! The sense of space children gets when being in the woods allows them to feel free to explore and learn.
The natural environment also gives children time and space without the usual external pressures often found in a more enclosed space. The abundant natural materials give opportunity for adventure, challenge and also allows children to extend their physical abilities, taking calculated, measured risks.
