Childcare Apprenticeship – Level 3 – Sunbeams Day Nursery , Weymouth

Job description:

Sunbeams Day Nursery, Weymouth, are seeking a reliable, dedicated and enthusiastic individual to join their setting as a Level 3 Childcare Apprentice. This is an exciting opportunity and one for those looking to progress in their childcare career.

Sunbeams have a large free flow accessible garden which means the children can chose to come inside or go outside as and when they would like. Their outside area is surrounded by fields, which look over the coast, all the way down to Portland Bill. Under our watchful eyes, the children are free to explore the garden, play with the swings, in the sandpit and wendy houses, and ride bicycles and scooters.

At one end of the garden, we have a small fenced off farm area with chickens, bunnies, guinea pigs, quails and a pond filled with fish. The children help the staff daily to collect the eggs and feed the animals.
The children use the eggs for our cooking activities and enjoy learning about how to look after and care for them. We have had our chickens since tiny hatchling's and our bunnies since they were newly born so the children have been a huge part of the growing process. We also have a vegetable patch and a greenhouse tunnel for the children to plant a wide variety of vegetables.

Their baby room is a fun-loving environment, with free flow access to a small, baby-safe garden. The babies can play with a variety of different toys to help build up their sensory and physical development.
At the nursery, they have a safe environment where they can learn to crawl, walk, talk and interact with lots of other children of their age.
