Come & work for Leap Ahead

Do you want to work for a local, inspirational, childcare company, where our staff are fundamental in the decisions & developments of the settings. Where staff, children & parents views are taken into consideration & where children are at the very heart of what we do.

We are looking for creative & fun people to join our team of 'Little Leapers.' You must have a warm & smiling face that makes every child feel special & loved. If a child requests that you be a princess, you will want to be the very best princess you can be, singing in tune is not necessary but being able to sing in front of a crowd is essential, especially frozen or most tunes from Disney.

You must want to inspire a curiosity to learn, you must want to create amazing learning opportunities & bring awe & wonder to each child's day whilst in your care. You must be an effective communicator, a team player, have a good ethos to work & a commitment to teaching the 'adults of the future'.

You must be able to stay focuses on environments with high noise levels, pretend to eat play dough creations, moo like a cow & munch like a giraffe.

You must feel comfortable with being asked personal questions like 'do you go to the toilet, what did you have for lunch, are you married?' & also, comfortable sitting on furniture that doesn't contain your 'behind'. You must be able to read a story out loud and be happy to get at least one interruption per page & authentically show an interest in bugs & creepy crawlies, even if they are your biggest fear on earth.

You must be focused on meeting not only the child's needs, but their parents, carers & any other adult who feels they 'know what is needed'. You must want to engage the parents & understand that they know their child best & provide excellent customer service. You must have a recognised Early Years Qualification at minimum Level 3.
