Salary: £26,393 - £31,484
Hours: 36 hours per week

Fox Covert is a large, busy Centre, with capacity for 85 children, attending various patterns of attendance between 8am and 6pm, 52 weeks per year. Our staff team is made up with a combination of 52-week staff and 39-week, term time staff. Hours are worked on a rota system, 36 hours per week, to fit the needs of the Centre. The Centre is supported with trained staff, in an environment that is both warm and welcoming. We have a Froebelian approach, supporting all learners to be the best they can, in a nurturing and rich setting.

Within our Centre, there is an expectation for the Early Years Officer to support children with complex backgrounds and to assist in the management of Child Protection. You will be working as part of a more Senior Management Team, with responsibility for guiding staff in the management of consistent, positive, daily routines for all our learners.
