Job Description

Loveders Nursery School is an Ofsted outstanding setting located in Nutbourne. We currently require a Nursery Apprentice to join our workforce and complete an Apprenticeship in Children and Young People's Workforce.


Loveders Nursery School is an Ofsted outstanding setting located in Nutbourne, West Sussex, caring for children aged 6 months to 12 years. Currently we require an enthusiastic, reliable and caring individual to join our friendly team as an Apprentice Nursery Assistant.

As an Apprentice your duties will include:

  • Caring for children's emotional, social, and personal needs
  • Ensuring the environment is clean, safe, and engaging
  • Plan and supervise activities
  • Support children's learning and development
  • Ensure all nursery policies and procedures are followed
  • Communicate with parents/carers regarding their children

As an Apprentice you will be included on a childcare qualification. Your qualification will be delivered by an Award Winning Training Provider who will support your learning and development throughout your Apprenticeship.

This will involve a Vocational Learning Advisor coming to visit you on a regular basis to deliver the training and guide you through your Apprenticeship.

Future Prospects

Many of our staff initially joined our team as an apprentice so there may be the opportunity of a more permanent position following a successful apprenticeship.

Reality Check

Working in a childcare can be a challenging yet rewarding career. Throughout the day you will be pretty active; moving around the room, bending, crouching and taking part in some light physical activity.

This vacancy may close early if sufficient applications are received. Please ensure you apply early to avoid disappointment. You will be contacted shortly by your Apprentice Recruitment Advisor to discuss your application for this Apprenticeship; if they can’t get hold of you they will text you their contact details.
