Level 3 Practitioner

Reports to: Pre-School Manager


Hours of work: Monday - Friday 8.45 – 3.30pm, although we would consider two part time positions working Monday - Friday 8.45am - 1pm / 12pm - 3.30pm.


Job Overview:

This is a new and exciting position. Applicants must be prepared to work outdoors in most weathers as we are a Forest School and believe there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. Building fires and using tools are an everyday occurrence and you should be relaxed in joining in and allowing the children to take supervised risks. The suitable candidate will have sound knowledge of the EYFS and be an innovative and creative practitioner who is keen to work hard and have a passion for making a difference within the Early Years. Initially this is very much a play based role but has exciting prospects should the candidate wish to progress to a more supervisory position. 


Key responsibilities:

  • To respect and observe children’s interest and extend play when necessary.

  • Enhance children’s play with resources, language and exploration opportunities.

  • To engage and communicate constructively with individual children during activities and routines.

  • To assess, observe and plan for children’s individual learning and developmental needs.

  • To assist in planning, evaluation and review of the EYFS.

  • To promote and facilitate partnerships with parents and carers.

  • To encourage and model social behaviour and expectations that are developmentally appropriate.

  • To promote British Values within the setting.

  • To engage with outside agencies involved with the children. 

  • To attend staff meetings when required.

  • To attend training courses when required.

  • To keep completely confidential any information regarding the children, their families or staff which is acquired as part of your position.

  • To be fully aware of all emergency and security procedures.

  • To adhere to all company policies and procedures.

  • To undertake any other reasonable duties as directed by the pre-school manager in accordance with the pre-school objectives
